Salazar gets an earful from Dillingham residents


Salazar asked for input and he got it — from people like 22-year-old commercial fisherman Verner Wilson.

"I have the signatures right here," said Wilson, holding up a stack of paper. "The 750 Bristol Bay fishermen who have signed this petition to protect our waters from offshore drilling."

Salazar asked for a show of hands of those opposed to development and the vast majority in attendance sent their arms skyward.
