Letter to the editor: Galvin represents our shared Alaskan values

Alyse Galvin is the only congressional candidate who will represent the values shared by all Alaskans. Her campaign began with grassroots organizers, and she has not taken money from corporations.

In fact, her ability to raise over $1 million from supporters speaks to how she has captured the hopes and dreams of thousands of Alaskans who support her as a strong and independent candidate.

Her opponent Don Young has done little to improve the lives of Alaskans. When compared with other states, Alaska is ranked #44 out of 50 by a U.S. News and World Report analysis. Alaska ranks #28 in health care, #40 in education and #50 in crime and corrections.

Under Young’s watch, the U.S. deficit is now $21 trillion for the first time ever.

Thousands of immigrant children have been separated from their parents and are now in detention centers.

Young supports an administration that has turned its back on our allies, comforted our enemies and reduced America’s standing among world leaders.

Alaskans and Americans deserve better. Alaskans deserve a Representative who will work to bring positive changes to our state and country. Please support and vote Alyse Galvin for Congress.

— Patricia Cue, Homer
