Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I’ve been stuck in special session for way too long now, and it’s been a while since I sent out a newsletter.
I’ve been doing what I can to keep us out of this ‘shutdown’ business, but obviously 10,000 layoff notices got mailed out yesterday. A lot of us in the legislature are willing to compromise – some people think too willing – but a few just aren’t. They want it their way or no way, and they’re willing to hurt Alaska’s economy, communities, and hardworking public employees to do it.
This is sad. It’s a new low in Alaska politics. And it ain’t over yet. Our public servants are still on the legislature’s negotiating table. So is our ferry service. Schools and Pre-K, too.
I’ll keep working ‘till this thing is finished. I’ll let you know more when we get somewhere.
Alaska State Senator
