Strategic positioning and capital move legislation

She has our back

Fellow Juneau citizens, you do not have to be a brain surgeon to understand how important it is to Juneau’s economy to keep the capital of Alaska in Juneau. It is clear that our Juneau legislative delegation is committed to this purpose. However the actions of one speak louder than words. See the Jan. 25 article in the Juneau Empire called, “Capital move fears stoked by bill” story. Some of you may not know that Rep. Cathy Muñoz took on the role of committee chair of the Community and Regional Affairs Committee with the clear intent (as chairwoman) of blocking any legislation that would not be in Juneau’s best interest.

She has our back! Remember that at election time.

Letter: A state income tax is fair and equitable

The courage and integrity of our legislators will be tested. Last year they failed to step up to the plate. Our courageous governor had the fortitude to do so. The time has come for Alaskans and those who work here to pay for the services received. Read more
