We hate the royalties they pay the Permanent Fund.
We hate the Dividend checks we get every year from the oil-funded Permanent Fund.
We hate the tax they pay to fund 90 percent of the State of Alaska general fund.
We hate the thousands of direct and indirect jobs they bring to us.
We hate the millions they donate every year to Alaska-based charities.
We hate the scholarships they give our kids.
If you want to see Big Oil stop doing these things for Alaska, vote “yes” on Ballot Measure 1.
If you want Big Oil to do more of these things, vote “no.”
I encourage you to vote on Aug. 19. I’ll be voting “no.”
