I am becoming quite curious about who would possibly want to vote into our highest government office, a candidate who spends more to buy himself or herself the seat, than they stand to get in wages for the length ot their term. If they have that much money, why not campaign to serve at no pay, and donate the normal pay for that office during their term to fund some of the education, housing, job-creating, etc. projects the government seems to lack the financial means to cover? I'll bet they would receive the majority of the votes!

...proposal that requires them to pay a tax? No one can pay bills without income. The federal and state governments need our tax money to pay theirs as they do not have a day job. Seems some citizens forget that. Georgia Griffin, Soldotna
...difference between a barren gathering of utilitarian buildings and businesses (such as seen in areas where the boom town builds, makes its cash and goes) and a warm, welcoming hometown. My compliments to the designer. Georgia Griffin Soldotna
...school taxes for many years. Also the dollar amount necessary to restore the funding for the few survivors would soon go away due to the normal die-off, where the other two under consideration will only increase. Georgia Griffin Soldotna
...I am in complete agreement with you. Personal and moral decisions should not have to be addressed by politicians. They have enough to do with running the government in the positions for which they were elected. Georgia Griffin Soldotna
...not help, but public education does. Where is the independent pride, common courtesy and good every-day sense that Alaskans used to be known for? Are we now too diluted with new people and internet input? Georgia Griffin, Soldotna
...election was to choose the most qualified person for the position. This should be based on his/her broadness of education, ethical lifestyle and a deep dedication to our country?s future. Am I being too naive? Georgia Griffin Soldotna
...created for the older generation (Longevity Bonus Program), and just wipe it all out, then start framing a payment plan based on the post-employment financial status of all the legislators. See? No problem. Georgia Griffin Soldotna
