Letter: Just say no to political contributions

I’d like to recommend that the Alaska Legislature and governor not pass another law until they’ve cleared up one critical and obvious issue: They must firmly and legally say no to the vast amounts of money donated to them for political purposes.

 

It’s getting ever more difficult to take the guys at the top seriously when we (on the more humble end of the scale) all know there’s a lot of wining, dining, gift-giving and gift-receiving that goes on behind closed doors.

Sorry to be so blunt, but someone’s gotta say it.

Thank you for reading through my message. Again, I mean this with the deepest respect.
