Say no to GM salmon

Alaskans have a right to know what’s in their food. Aware of the human health and environmental concerns linked to genetically modified (GM) foods like Frankenfish, Alaskans are speaking out in large numbers to demand answers. We built a coalition to fight FDA approval of Frankenfish with statewide support from all who love our wild Alaska salmon, our fishing families, fishing organizations, and public officials on both sides of the aisle.

Alaskans are unified in our opposition to Frankenfish. In May, I announced I’m introducing legislation requiring labeling of all GM foods sold in Alaska.

We can achieve labeling of GM foods if we join together again. The 4th annual Food Film Festival finished recently, and hundreds attended showings of GMO: OMG. I was proud to play a part in this year’s festival and share information about the GM labeling legislation. Thank you to ACE, the Alaska Food Policy Council, and Bear Tooth for hosting this important event. Please join this effort to affirm our right to know what’s in our food.

Last October, the good folks in the Kenai Borough approved creation of two new pieces of paper called a bond for infrastructure projects. Read more

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
