Murkowski Remembers Reverend Doctor Walter Soboleff

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Murkowski, R-AK, released the following statement regarding the passing of Reverend Doctor Walter Soboleff:

“Reverend Soboleff wanted to be remembered as one who tried to do his best in a time of changing culture and one who took positives from both the Native and Western worlds.  I think I can speak for all of Alaska when I say he achieved that goal.
