Setting the record straight on AOGA

In a recent Juenau Empire opinion column, writer Kate Troll makes an inaccurate statement. In it, she claims “major financial contributions from Alaska Oil and Gas Association combined with districts re-drawn to favor Republican challengers led to the breakup of the Senate Bipartisan Working Group.”

Not true. The Alaska Oil and Gas Association (AOGA) is a non-partisan organization. Our bylaws specifically prohibit us from supporting and endorsing candidates, and we do not, nor have we ever, made financial contributions to anyone seeking elected office. As the industry’s professional trade organization in Alaska, we take seriously our mission to inform the public about the importance of the oil and gas industry to Alaska’s economy. We remain committed to working with elected officials of all parties to foster the long-term viability of the oil and gas industry for the benefit of all Alaskans.
