Mike Dunleavy on Government Reform



A moral obligation to fulfill the promise of statehood

Sixty-four years after we've joined the union, Alaska is still fighting for its rights to be treated as a sovereign by the federal government that's on equal footing with the other states. For example, the Biden Administration, over the past two years, has restricted Alaska's ability to capitalize on the resources within our borders. We have a moral obligation to ensure that we fulfill the promise of statehood and are allowed to create our own destiny for future generations.

Ranked-choice voting interjects a little bit of uncertainty

Dunleavy and Dahlstrom were asked about their thoughts on ranked-choice voting. "We've got to make sure that when people vote they walk away from that voting booth and they believe that, in fact, their vote does matter, does count, and will be calculated, tabulated, counted ... and apply to the individual or the issue that they intended to vote for. Certainly this new system interjects a little bit of uncertainty for a number of Alaskans."

Strengthen agricultural sector with fewer regulations

My administration has embarked upon a process to strengthen our agricultural sector. We're going to start by making it easier for farmers to secure land with fewer regulations. We're going to support the growth of our agricultural sector and allow farmers to prosper. In addition, we're going to continue to support our growing mariculture industry. This industry has unlimited potential to provide food, wealth, and jobs to many Alaskans.
