Legislation that makes sense

...find out how to make it happen. Downsize DCers want to downsize and decentralize the government by restoring constitutional limits and the Bill of Rights. It takes an army of citizens, and it is a non-partisan fight. Vicki Pate, Nikiski
Letters have familiar ring

On Wednesday the Clarion printed a letter from James Price extolling Fred Sturman as an agent for change. An identical letter appeared the same day in The Redoubt Reporter signed by Vicki Pate. Who is the real author of the letter?
Borough needs attitude adjustment

I have worked with mayoral candidate Fred Sturman for over a decade. The first initiative we worked on together was the 2001 initiative that, thankfully, stopped the private prison in its tracks. Since then he has co-sponsored at least seven more that I can think on which I've helped collect signatures. He is a tireless worker, and has put his own money and his own time where his mouth is. How many other people running for office can say that?
Doing the math on Murkowski contributions

...would be if Lisa could split the vote enough to let McAdams win. They wanted something for the money they already contributed. A doomed write-in effort was their best shot. It's a plausible Rest-of-the-Story. Vicki Pate, Nikiski

ACT members oppose changes to initiative process

...signatures far in excess of what is necessary to win a position on the ballot. There is another reason. ACT member Vicki Pate told the assembly Aug. 21 that petitions are a little like buffets people get excited at the prospect, but often can't...
Props 3, 4 could help lower Nikiski taxes

...Unless we all vote yes on Propositions 3 and 4 on Oct. 5., the NPRSA will start putting in sprinklers as planned. If Vicki Pate and David Machado can join James Price on the recreation board, the three of them can vote that money back into the...
