Governor Sean Parnell, who is running for re-election this year, was in Petersburg on Monday. He met with some community leaders and interviewed with KFSK. He said he’s very supportive of hydro-electric projects in South East and all over the state. Although there are no South East hydro projects in his capitol budget right now, he said he’s relying on regional legislators to bring projects like that up.
