In his third State of the State Address, Gov. Mike Dunleavy will highlight the need to guarantee the PFD for future generations, Alaska’s ability to be self-reliant, energy independent, maximize every opportunity, and potential to be a sovereign within the United States.
His office released excerpts from the State of the State Address – as prepared for delivery. Dunleavy will be speaking from Anchorage and will be broadcast on Vimeo and on Facebook.
- “As part of my Path Forward for Alaska, I’m asking that $5 billion, a portion of the [Permanent Fund] earnings of this past year, be put toward pulling Alaskans out of a crisis the likes of which this generation has never faced.”
- “While we must continue to be an exporter of resources, we must also ensure that we have the capabilities to create and enhance new sectors of our economy to go it alone in the event of a future disaster.”
- “…maximizing opportunity is about more than standing up new industries. If we’re to move Alaska forward, we must provide our children with the quality education they deserve.”
- “I remain 100% committed to prosecuting the war on crime and supporting our frontline heroes. From our smallest villages to our largest cities, no Alaskan should be forced to live in fear.”
