Gov. Mike Dunleavy announced his “Conversations with Alaskans” town hall series, to engage Alaskans on their vision of the state’s future. The first event is Monday, Feb. 3 with others to follow with community leaders, business groups, non-profits, schools, tribes and the general public.
“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 traveling town halls will pose the following questions, according to the governor.
I want to hear your thoughts, understand your concerns, and see your vision of what you want Alaska to be like…
- What are your thoughts on revenues, budget reductions, spending caps, and the future of the PFD?
- What programs and services do you value?
- Should state spending be measured by inputs or outcomes?
- What natural resource opportunities do you support and see in your area and across the state?
- What are some ideas you may have that I, or the Legislature, have not thought of?”
The events are open to the public, and additional events will be announced in the near future.
“I want to hear your thoughts, understand your concerns, and see your vision of what you want Alaska to be like for our children and grandchildren,” Gov. Dunleavy said. “My hope is that we can set aside the bitter partisanship often driven by outside agendas. If we can work together to solve our fiscal issues this year, I believe Alaska will have a bright and prosperous future.”
