Letter to the Editor: Would you call for Dunleavy recall?

Dear Editor,

Every day, more and more Alaskans are expressing outrage over the potential impact of Governor Dunleavy’s proposed budget, and dismay with the manner in which it has been presented.

Yes, revenue and spending need to be balanced.  Yes, cuts – reasonable cuts – can be made.  And yes, it likely comes down to generating more revenue for services by either decreasing PFD’s or re-instituting state income tax.

But can you believe it has been only 14 days since our Governor and his budget director Donna Arduin began this debacle, and the stress their approach has already created?

Valdez Mayor Jeremy O’Neil suggested he resign.

Are you resigned to four years of this leadership?

Article XI of the Alaska Constitution outlines procedures for State Office Recall.

The first step requires the signatures of 10 percent of those who voted in the last election.

Would you sign?

Dick Shellhorn
