Bill Walker Announces Run For Governor
ANCHORAGE- Bill Walker is making another run for governor.
"I would only run if I had too and I don’t have a political issue or bucket list to some sort where I’m trying to launch a political career or stay in politics---none of that, I don’t like the direction we’re going that we’ve gone. It does concern me and I think that if we don’t have a change, a significant change, I’m not happy with where we’re headed," said Walker on the Anchorage Rock Station KWHL's morning radio show, "Bob and Mark."
"We don’t have a clear leadership, we don’t have a clear direction of the path forward. We need that, we need that for our children, for our grandchildren. We need that to save Alaska so I couldn’t feel more committed to a decision then I am right now, because I hate what I know . I hate what I see out there and I hate to see what we’re doing to ourselves," said Walker at the official press conference inside his home.
Walker currently hosts the weekly political talk-show, "On-Point with Bill Walker" on ABC affiliates statewide.
