Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Rozann Kimpton and her great-granddaughter came to discuss funding for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.
Rozann Kimpton and her great-granddaughter came to discuss funding for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.

In a very close vote, this week the Senate passed the controversial Oil Tax Giveaway (SB21), which gets us one step closer to giving massive tax cuts to oil producers with no guarantees of increased production. The money generated from oil taxes in Alaska pays for our roads, supports public education and funds critical services like suicide prevention and programs to prevent fetal alcohol syndrome. Now the bill is being heard in the House Resources committee and I am paying close attention to the testimony.

I think we can all agree that ACES needs to be reformed, but this is a giveaway and not in the best interest of the State.

There have also been several attempts by this Legislature to dismantle our current public school system, as well as hinder attempts to improve it, all so public money can be used to benefit private and religious institutions at the cost of hard earned Alaska tax dollars.

That is why I am asking you to go to the Alaska Democrats’ website and sign our petition against voucher legislation currently in the House and Senate.

Whether it’s massive cuts to pre-K funding, a refusal to keep school funding inline with inflation, or an attempt to change the language of our state’s constitution, we have not been doing enough for our PUBLIC schools.

Please take a moment to sign our petition and mark your calendar to join in the conversation about what needs to be done for us to better serve Alaska’s children!

Thank you,

Harriet Drummond[signed]
