Gov. Mike Dunleavy and his budget director Donna Arduin should have shown more compassion towards the citizens of Alaska by giving (as promised) the full Permanent Fund dividend back-payout in their budget this year. At least we would have a down payment for our moving expenses when our employers and communities bear the brunt of their proposed budget cuts.
I hope the remaining voters will ask questions, kick the tires and take a closer look ‘under the hood’ before they cast their next precious vote.
