Les and Jess talk Policy in Homer

Homer News | Michael Armstrong | June 22, 2022

At the heart of their campaign, Democratic Party candidates for governor and lieutenant governor Les Gara and Jessica Cook look to increasing funding for education from pre-kindergarten through university to keep Alaska growing — and Alaskans from moving out of state.

Earlier this month, Gara and Cook stopped by the Homer News on June 2 for an interview in between visits with local businesses and city officials. That Thursday night they held a meet-and-greet at the home of Rich Chiappone, a Homer writer and a fishing buddy of Gara, and retired high school counselor Lin Hampson.
