Once again today my mailbox was stuffed with attack ads and mudslinging. In just a week one of these candidates will be elected to office. He will be followed by the mistrust that has been developed during the campaign. Negative campaigning is not good for Alaska or the United States. This political...

Would anyone object if the Do Not Call list were amended to include sales pitches from political parties and political election surveys? The amount of phone calls from these entities this year has been overwhelming....

Alaskans can all agree that privacy is our right. We don’t like people telling us how to live and we don’t like the government nosing into our private lives. So it’s very troubling that U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan does not value privacy like we do. Yes, he will tell you every chance he ...

November 4th will decide some very important races in our state. No doubt we are all a bit tired of the phone calls, adds, flyers, etc. trying to convince us to vote for one candidate or the other.
