The Alaska Legislature has a significant role in ensuring that
all citizens of Alaska have, through public policies:
The current legislature has fallen short in accomplishing these
significant and reasonable acts.
- A safe and healthy environment
- Equitable distribution of the state's wealth
- Preservation of fish and game through state management
- Education of our children and adults in public education
- Fiscal plan to ensure our state can support stability
in our communities for diversified commerce and trade
As an elected State House Representative of District 6, Kodiak
Island, I will proactively advocate for Kodiak to remain a
leading model community with:
I would like to continue as a Representative on the state
level after serving Kodiak for over 12 years on a local level.
- A statewide fiscal plan that encourages incentives
which provides necessary funds for current services and
infrastructure that local communities cannot alone afford;
- Fully inflation proof funding for education;
- Commercial fisheries to remain important in the state
of Alaska and Kodiak to be a participant in those decisions;
- State management of Alaska resources to be a choice
of the individual citizen, not a few legislators.
Let's work together to make a change because your vote for a
new Representative is the only way that a difference can be made.
Thank you for your vote to allow me to serve you as a public
servant on the state level.
