Arctic Slope Regional Corporation Endorses Senator Sullivan for Reelection

ANCHORAGE, AK – Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) has announced its endorsement of Senator Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) for reelection. In making its endorsement, ASRC pointed to Sullivan’s successful track record of strong advocacy on issues important to the North Slope and Alaska Native communities.

“This is a rather unusual move for our board, but an important one. Leadership … on issues most important to Alaskans is needed now more than ever,” said Rex A. Rock Sr., ASRC President and CEO.“ For the past six years (and even before), we’ve relied on the steady support from Senator Sullivan in a wide variety of issues – from his successful efforts to bolster Arctic defense infrastructure, to working to secure the automatic renewal of the subsistence whaling quota at the International Whaling Commission in Brazil two years ago, to helping to confirm former ASRC executive Tara Sweeney to her current position as the Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs, to an Alaska Native corporation’s right to be included when CARES Act funds are distributed – not to mention his leadership involving opening ANWR to responsible exploration. Senator Sullivan is certainly aligned with our values, and we’ll need his proven effectiveness moving forward.”
