Add your voice to Ballot Measure 1 hearings

Alaskans across the state can speak out on Ballot Measure 1 next week.

As required by law, the Lt. Governor’s office has scheduled four hearings on the job-busting initiative proposed and financed by oil foe Robin Brena. While these sessions are typically held in person, they will be held telephonically due to limitations related to COVID-19.

Testimony sessions will be split by judicial district in an effort to allow for as much time for public comment as possible.

  • And when you call in…….ask where Bill Walker is hiding?

  • “This is Al Gross. I’m really not for the Green New Deal. I’m really not a radical Left-wing liberal Democrat. I fight bears in hand combat. I have cojones. I was born near an avalanche. Please vote for me. I really, really want to be a Senator and work on Chuck Schumer’s team.”

  • “I’m actually a Liberal and will caucus with the Democrats.”
    Keep playing that recording, Senator Sullivan. It scares the hell out of the wind-bag doc.

  • Only an idiot like Brena would attempt to screw Alaska by trying to shaft the one industry that pays all the bills in Alaska. Some people need to be run out on a rail, this guy is one of them.
