Running to protect the ‘second Permanent Fund’ — fish
By Les Gara and Jessica Cook For the Homer News • February 23, 2022
We’ve teamed up to run because you deserve a brighter future. When families see continued education cuts and a lack of job opportunity they lose hope. Twenty-thousand more people have left Alaska under the current governor than have moved here. Too many of our neighbors don’t see a bright Alaska future anymore.
We both grew up with hardship, like many of you. And we each believe, from our own experiences, that people deserve a good education, good-paying jobs, and a living minimum wage instead of one that leaves a full-time single parent in poverty.
