Governor’s State of State Address will highlight PFD, usual topics

bronsonformayor bronsonformayor

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.”

  • Mike can just save his breath talking to anything about PFD related mumbo jumbo. I’ve heard it all before and his lack of action speaks louder than words.

  • Great speech. Let’s see what comes of it.

  • But no mention of election integrity? Try again, Big Guy. Without it, you will be toast in 2022.

  • Thank GOD!!! AK has a great leader in Dunleavy. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

  • I was looking for him to say that he, before the ink had dried, had directed our attorney general to sue Biden for unilaterally shutting down ANWR 1002 development, thus breaking the law passed by Congress.

    • To begin with how is it you believe that politicians, particularly D’s have ever followed the law? Then, you must know by now that if you go against said lawbreaking D’s that you’ll be labeled a white supremacist and be cancelled out.

  • I still don’t know whether to feel pity, or contempt, or both, for broken and cowed Governor WorriedFace.
    My God, does that man EVER smile or break his seemingly permanent frown?
