In support of Mark Begich
Mark Begich has two opponents for governor. When I look at all three, Begich leads out in all the ways that matter to me. Begich stands strongly for the things I care most about: environment, education, women’s rights, human rights, and sustainable Alaskan jobs and ways of life.
Mark Begich is the only candidate who supports a woman’s right to make her own health decisions. As a woman, I find that obvious, but neither of the other candidates supports that.
Both feel those are decisions best left to government.
Mark Begich is the only candidate who supports the fishing industry and our Alaska way of life. When temporary interests threaten their very survival, Mark Begich stands up for Alaskans’ legal voice to protect wild salmon and those jobs and life-ways that depend on them. What kind of Alaskan does not value salmon and the vast community they support?
Mark Begich has spent a lifetime working to strengthen communities throughout Alaska, championing subsistence rights, strong cultural heritage, good public education, sustainable jobs, health, wellness, and mail delivery in all parts of our state.
The choice is obvious. Mark Begich for Alaska.
