Gov. Mike Dunleavy will hold the first of his “Conversations with Alaskans” town hall-style meetings from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, March 2 at Chugiak High.
“I want to hear what ideas Alaskans have on how we can overcome our current fiscal challenges and create prosperity for generations to come," Dunleavy said in a statement. "It’s time for Alaskans to unite in a common purpose, and work together to put our state back on the right track.”
Last month, the governor announced he’d be holding a series of public meetings to talk with constituents about the state’s fiscal situation. Previous meetings in the series scheduled for Feb. 3-4 in Petersburg and Wrangell were cancelled due to bad weather.
In his January announcement about the town hall meetings, Dunleavy said he’s hoping to hear people’s opinions on the Permanent Fund dividend, the necessity of state programs and services; how state spending outcomes should be measured; and which natural resource opportunities people support.
“I am looking forward to engaging with Alaskans from every corner of our state in the crucial decisions for Alaska’s future,” Dunleavy said.
The governor’s office has not yet announced future town hall locations and dates.
