Letter: Oil tax issue is worthy of debate

I urge Gov. Sean Parnell to accept Sen. Bill Wielechowski’s offer to debate the issue of oil taxes. It would be a good way for Alaskans to get real information on the possible benefits/ramifications of changing the tax structure. Instead of hearing each side taking shots at each other through the press, let us hear it straight from the horses’ mouths.

Alaskans can only benefit from having more information about this very important subject. This is one of the most important decisions in Alaska’s history and worthy of a live debate by two people with real knowledge of the potential impacts, good or bad.

Politicians debate each other when running for office and this issue is far more important then the outcome of a local election.
