"If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in anyparticular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates.But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this in one instance may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."—President George Washington (Farewell Address – Monday, September 19
May 23, 2013To: Fellow Republicans and members of the larger Eagle River/Chugiak/Fort Richardsoncommunity:Re: A Message from the Elected and Appointed Officers of District 12As many of you are already aware, the recent internal conflict over state leadership of theAlaska Republican Party has led to interference in our district activities on the part of one faction plying for leadership of our state party. As the current and former elected and appointed officersof our district we have observed these unprecedented and regrettable activities with increasingresolve that they not be permitted to interfere with the duties and responsibilities that we have tothe members of our community.

We hope thatsuch explanation will alleviate any unnecessary concerns on the part of those in the community,and will permit us to quickly return to our mission of organizing and providing an effective voicefor the grassroots members of our district who desire to promote the principles and values of good government so ably expressed in our Alaska Republican Party Platform. In doing so asdistrict officers, we wish to make clear that we do not speak for the Republican elected officialsresiding in our district, many of whom have chosen not to be involved in the internal affairs of the Alaska Republican Party.
Our mission: To promote fidelity to the principles upon which our country was founded withinevery facet of our government; to ensure that our elected and appointed public officialsrepresent the citizens of our district and the values and principles of good government so ablyexpressed in our platform.
In furtherance of that mission, our district executive committee met on April 1
toconsider a resolution adopted by District 8 expressing support for the elected state leadership of the Alaska Republican Party and expressing strong criticism of the attempts to remove themfrom office, thereby circumventing the election that was held at the 2012 Alaska StateConvention. The resolution was passed unanimously by the members of our district executivecommittee and was submitted to the District 12 Committee for consideration at our April 25
