YOUR PFD was not cut! YOUR PFD was not borrowed! It was STOLEN! Per Alaska Statute (law), your PFD is to be calculated by the original statutory formula as set forth in 1982 when payments first began. This formula is constitutionally protected. Therefore all actions taken against your PFD was unlawful and speaks corruption. You do not deserve this, your children do not; for a lot of rural Alaskans depend on it for everyday expenses. Hard working Alaskans like yourself deserve better for you depend on the yearly pay out to buy a new vehicle, catch up on bills, get kids school gear, stock up on expensive food and gas, etc...
When you vote for me, you are voting for pure support in reinstating and protecting the original formula to be used. I will work with the legislature to provide equality and dignity when it comes to permanent fund dividend.
The legislature worries for what Alaskans like yourself spend your PFD on and that is unacceptable. Studies prove that the PFD funds circulate within the economy 7 times.
Our native women and children are falling victims to senseless, heinous crimes and we cannot wait any longer to act or lose another. Your vote will secure support in creating new laws that educate and train our law enforcement to approach and monitor heavily congested youth areas and young women areas. If children are engaging in playful activity, whether in small or large groups, officers will be trained to be alert, stay in the area, and scope out for perpetrators who may be watching the children or stalking. By making such law, more awareness will be spread to help protect and give security to our youth. They are our future and we must protect them!
There are many adjustments to be made, this is just the beginning.
Alaska is best know for its people, the beautiful scenery, wild animals, and abundance of natural resources. We are one of, if not, the richest state in minerals and gas. These resources help sustain our economy and provide jobs and revenue. A cycle that stays with us for a long time. Your vote secures responsible thinking to the best solutions utilizing our resources without effecting wildlife or subsistence activities. Jobs are scarce during certain times and are crucial to our economy.
Responsible resource development starts with the voices of the people impacted by the resource area. Giving the people the voice first allow a sense of trust and security that all actions taken are made with the exception the people have their fair say and share of the resource developed.
Majority? Minority? Lets throw it out! Its childish and limits all legislative members from having decision making ability on some or all of Alaskas biggest issues. The only place I see fit for it is a 9-12th grade classroom in which the 11th and 12 graders get to choose the movie. This rule plays tribute to Alaskas wrong direction. Right now many candidates running for office want to end the binding caucus. If elected along with those candidates we would work together in junction of finally giving all Alaskans a voice. A voice that has been silenced for far too long.
Why not balance out the budget first by reducing the amount of legislature and moving the capital to the road system. Per diem is abused and sessions are dragged out to accumulate those costs.
