State Rep. Andrew Gray says Alaskans who are poor need the full Permanent Fund dividend, and that’s a big reason why he supports it, rather than the annually negotiated PFD checks that have short-changed recipients.
In this episode of The Must Read Alaska Show, host John Quick is joined by Rep. Gray. Gray of Anchorage. He says he is invested in Alaska’s future, advocating for the full funding of the Permanent Fund dividend to ensure Alaskans continue to benefit from this state program.
As a veteran and physician assistant, Rep. Gray, a Democrat, provides insights into the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee work and discusses House bills and resolutions of interest to Alaskans.
Gray, a Democrat, also shares his legislative goals, emphasizing the need for long-term fiscal plans to secure Alaska’s prosperity.
Beyond politics, Andrew connects with his community through his own popular podcasts, “East Anchorage Book Club” and “East Anchorage Matters,” where he explores diverse perspectives and matters close to the heart of East Anchorage residents and beyond.
