Our president won’t do it, thus our governor must, in order to save Alaskans’ lives. Close this state down for three or four months. Use the money from the Permanent Fund to continue unemployment benefits for just those individuals that are out of work. Those who are retired have their Social Security, pensions and retirement distributions to live on. People in this great state are dying, and it’s up to our leadership to act or we need to change our leadership, as we will in November on the national scale.
Don’t let the virus take more Alaskans’ lives. Close the state, borders and all.
— Mike Gumbleton
