Good Government

  • I believe and actively support bipartisan and coalition government, and I believe in and will actively work to create coalitions in the Alaska House of Representatives.
  • I believe bipartisanship and civility are as important to our politics as salmon and oil are to our economy.
  • I am opposed to corporations having "rights" as people. Corporations have privileges; people have inalienable rights.
  • I co-chaired the "Alaskans for Integrity" ballot initiative that ushered into law the "no budget, no pay" provision, as well closing a loophole that allows lobbyists to wine and dine legislators over expensive, $100 dinners.
