Dear Friends and Neighbors,
With only 3 weeks left of session, we’re still working hard in Juneau. Education, gasline, and the budget are the top issue we will address in the remaining weeks.
REMINDER: Today is the deadline to file for your PFD.
There is an important Anchorage municipal election tomorrow. Multiple assembly and school board seats are up for election, and there are a number of bond propositions to be voted on. Make your vote count!
To find your polling location, call 243-VOTE.
Honoring Alaska Native Veterans
Today the Alaska Senate unanimously passed a resolution I introduced supporting the construction of a monument in our nation’s capital honoring the service of Alaska Native and American Indian veterans.
Alaska Natives have served honorably in all military conflicts since World War II. This is one small way to recognize the generations of Alaska Natives and American Indians, including 5,500 living Alaska Native veterans, for their patriotism, sacrifice and dedication to our country.
Protecting our 4th Amendment Rights
Today the Senate also adopted an amendment I offered urging the Governor to withhold material aid for the National Security Agency’s controversial mass spying operations.
The National Security Agency’s well documented programs to monitor the private communications of U.S. citizens have been found to trample Americans’ 4th amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure. State resources and personnel should never support mass spying on innocent Alaskans by the federal government.
We must protect Alaskans from this indiscriminate surveillance into our private communications. It is unconstitutional and just plain wrong.
Stars & Stripes Award
This past weekend on JBER, I was honored to recognize Colette and Ann Ohotnicky for receiving their Stars & Stripes award from the American Heritage Girls.
Free Dental Care
The Alaska Mission of Mercy will be providing free dental care at the Dena’ina Center, 600 W. 7th Avenue, Friday, April 11 and Saturday April 12, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
· Free dental care for up to 2,000 patients in just 2 days!
· Children and adults
· First come, first served
· No application process, no income limitations
· Patient information at www.akmom.org
The main goal of the Alaska Mission of Mercy is to relieve pain and infection. It is unlikely that all of your dental needs will be met at this clinic. Multiple procedures such as fillings AND extractions are not likely because they are trying to provide care for as many people as possible.
As always, feel free to get in touch with me if you have any thoughts or suggestions.
