Not in the Outsider ads paid for by Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth, et al.
Facts: As Mayor of Anchorage, Mark Begich and the Assembly closed a $33 million inherited budget deficit while improving city roads and “spurring construction of the Dena’ina Civic Center” (ADN, Sept. 11, 2014). He balanced the city’s budget, enabling S&P to upgrade Anchorage’s bond rating to AA.
Alaskans know that! They won’t be duped or bought with Outsider propaganda. There are facts to refute every ad! (And isn’t it a terrible shame we can’t trust the ads?)
