Vote yes on 2

Don’t be a chump. Vote yes on Ballot Measure 2 on Aug. 28.

 

In territorial days carpetbaggers from outside ripped off our resources and took the profits south. Alaskans had little say in who got the fish, trees, oil and minerals or how they were managed. The Feds decided. The Feds and their rich, Lower 48 patrons.

Statehood helped for a while, but the bad old days seem to be back. By weakening and then letting our Coastal Management Program die, our own state politicians sold us out. Most of us live in coastal communities. Without a strong Coastal Management Program we have minimal input into where and how development takes place. It’s once more up to self serving politicos and their rich pals from outside.

They’re spending big to keep it that way too, over $767,000 from outside — New York, London, Texas, Canada, the Netherlands, California and more.

Big contributions.

Big corporations.

Big lies about Ballot Measure 2.

International carpetbaggers are trying to buy our election so they can rip us off and take the profits away. They’re counting on us being too dumb to see it.
