Alaskans' votes the only ones that matter

Posted: Tuesday, April 27, 2010

This letter is to those legislators who disregard the vote of the people.

I am mad, disappointed and angry. You can not think we have anymore trust in you after overriding a voter-approved initiative.

I was one of the people who wanted the $50 head tax for cruise ship passengers. I can't believe our governor and elected officials went behind our backs and pushed this bill through without first bringing it back to the people of Alaska to decide once more whether to vote for or against it.

It is as though our votes did not even matter, though our vote are the only ones that matter.
