About the Author

​David Ramseur moved to Alaska in 1979 where he reported on politics and government in the state and national capitals for the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner and Anchorage Times. Beginning in 1986 for nearly 30 years, he served as press secretary, communications director, chief of staff, and foreign policy advisor to Alaska Governors Steve Cowper and Tony Knowles and to Anchorage Mayor and U.S. Senator Mark Begich. Ramseur has visited the Soviet Union and Russia more than a dozen times starting with the Alaska Airlines' "Friendship Flight" in 1988, and lived and worked in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, in 1993.

Ramseur has published numerous articles about Russia in Alaska newspapers, the Foreign Trade and Investment Review, and with the Kennan Institute, a leading Washington, D.C. Russian think tank. He holds a bachelor's in political science from the University of North Carolina Asheville and a master's in journalism from the University of Missouri. Ramseur is a visiting scholar in public policy at the University of Alaska Anchorage's Institute of Social and Economic Research and board member of the Alaska World Affairs Council. He lives in Anchorage with his spouse, attorney Susan Wibker.

Ramseur and UPI correspondent Jeff Berliner were among the 80 Alaskans on the Alaska Airlines Friendship Flight to Provideniya, USSR, in June 1988.

His most recent book, "Melting the Ice Curtain", was published this year and is the dramatic story of how inspiration, courage, and persistence by Alaskan and Russian citizen-diplomats stared down the Cold War to bridge a widening gap in superpower relations, a model sorely needed today.

The Mat-Su Recycle Coalition is beginning a campaign to increase the awareness of Valley residents to the hazards of single-use plastic bags.   Funding is needed to pay for radio spots on Valley Radio to bring attention to this problem in our environment.   Plastic bag litter is everywhere.  Besides creating an unsightly mess, plastic bag litter kills many animals, including our own caribou and reindeer.  Plastic bags end up in our watershed and eventually the ocean, where they create even more hazards for marine animals.  Plastic never biodegrades, but just breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces of petroleum chemicals and then enters the food chain.  Plastic particles have been found in plankton on which  our salmon feed.  It then ends up on our dinner plates!  
Our goal is to encourage residents to cut down on their use of plastic bags by taking their own reusable bags when they shop.
Please help us bring attention to this problem.  We would appreciate whatever amount you can donate.  Even the smallest donation is valuable.    A radio spot costs from $6 to $10.  So your $10 could purchase one radio spot.   
We will also be boosting posts on Facebook at a cost of $5 per booster.   
Radio spots have already been prepared and will begin as soon as funding is available.
As Alaskans we are very proud of our environment, so we encourage you to join us in reducing the impact of plastic bags on it.

I am passionate about creating and performing world class pop music, and putting Alaska on the map as a music monster. I am most inspired by Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Train, and Ed Sheeran. I play primarily with my band, and dream to one day headline a major national concert-tour.
