U. S. Senator Frank Murkowski, the Republican nominee for governor, will meet with University of Alaska regents on Wednesday, October 16 beginning at 3 p. m. in Room 107 of the University Commons on the UAA campus in Anchorage.

Murkowski said he was eager to meet with the regents to talk about his vision for Alaska’s future, and the importance of the university to Alaska’s economic development.

Regents invited both Murkowski and Lt. Gov. Fran Ulmer, the Democratic nominee for governor, to meet with them at the September meeting, but only Ulmer was able to appear. Murkowski was in Washington, D. C.

Regents are meeting in Anchorage on October 16 for committee meetings and talks about strategic planning and budget development.
