‘It is critical now, more than ever,
that we stand our ground to protect and restore our coastal communities.’
KODIAK – Representative Louise Stutes released the following statement this morning:
“If you know me, you know that during my time in Juneau I’ve never lost sight of where I come from. Although a proud Republican for 50 years, I am first and foremost a representative
of my district.
Kodiak, Cordova, Yakutat, Seldovia and all District 32 communities in between are reliant on a healthy Alaska Marine Highway System, robust fisheries management, quality K-12
schools, public safety, community revenue sharing, and investment in infrastructure. It’s no secret that services rural Alaskans depend on have been disproportionately targeted for cuts. As a result, I’ve prioritized working with legislators who support those
services and my district, regardless of party affiliation.
It is critical now, more than ever, that we stand our ground to protect and restore our coastal communities.
After giving it careful thought, I’m making it public that I’ll be caucusing with my colleagues in the current House Majority Coalition who share my vision for a vibrant rural,
as well as urban Alaska.
By working together, I am confident we can build a bright future for all Alaskans.
May you have a Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays with your loved ones!”
