Contrary to the governor’s claims, Alaska is not a good climate in which businesses will start up, thrive or even continue. What business owner wants to move to a state where there is no respect or concern for education, property taxes are through the roof due to state cuts, and there is no appreciation for the arts? How attractive to businesses and employees is a state where roads and infrastructure are falling apart and homelessness and street begging are rampant due to social services cuts?
