TREADWELL TOUTS HIS OWN EXPERIENCE AT PRESS CONFERENCE
Gubernatorial candidate Mead Treadwell compared his experience with that Mike Dunleavy today by holding a press conference, saying he is a “workhorse, not a show horse.” He outlined his extensive resume and said he is most qualified to be governor.
“I don’t have anything negative to say about Mike but ‘Where have you been?’ He wasn’t there for a vote on the Permanent Fund Protection Act. He wasn’t there to be a cosponsor for a repeal on SB 91.”
Treadwell said his research shows that when people know he has a business record and Dunleavy doesn’t, then he is neck-and-neck with Dunleavy in polling. He played a radio spot that will start soon.
On the same day, former Gov. Sean Parnell issued a statement saying he is endorsing Mike Dunleavy, a man who he has worked with when he was governor and Dunleavy was in the Senate.
Dunleavy is a person who will keep his word, he said, in contrast with Gov. Bill Walker, who has not.
Parnell said, “We need a governor who will once again look out for Alaskans’ interests, make us safer, create opportunity, and be a governor who will create a climate for more Alaska jobs. Mike Dunleavy will be that governor.”
Parnell said he found him honest, thoughtful, and passionate about protecting Alaskans and Alaska’s interests.
