Reader has questions about candidate

Having done some research on the recent background of Tom Bearup, currently running for Kenai Peninsula Borough mayor, I am interested in the reasons for his change in career focus. My research shows that he ran for Sheriff in Pinal County, Arizona in 2012, after working in the Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Department for several years. Mr. Bearup was unsuccessful in that election and now is making his mayoral bid here. My questions are: How would his law enforcement and campaign experiences in Arizona benefit the Kenai Peninsula Borough?

Give SB 21 a chance to work

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 With this upcoming oil tax vote, my fear is there will be no jobs if SB21 is repealed.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.
