I have lived in Alaska for many decades and raised my family here. Today, I am watching my grandkids prepare to go away to college and my hope is that when their education journey comes to an end, that Alaska can entice them back with good paying jobs. With this upcoming oil tax vote, my fear is there will be no jobs if SB21 is repealed. The new oil tax law is working and I would like to see it continue to work for Alaskans now, as well as into the future — so my grandkids know they can always come home. I am voting No on 1 on August 19th and would encourage Alaskans to do the same. If the new tax law doesn’t bring Alaska more production, we can go back and change it, but right now, let’s give it a chance to work.
