I don’t know about other District 31 voters, but I want a representative who respects my intelligence and appeals to my better nature.
I want a representative who will tell me the facts and help me understand the hard decisions we need to make, not pacify me with empty promises, pie-in-the-sky ideas, and rhetoric.
I want a representative who cares about the future of this state and the futures of my child and grandchild. I want a representative who doesn’t think I am so selfish that I would want to line my pockets with the highest PFD possible even if it will drain the fund dry.
I want a representative who will take action to truly protect the permanent fund for my child and grandchild. I want a representative who fights for funding our education system so my grandchild is part of a generation of Alaskans prepared to face a daunting future.
I want a representative who has integrity and always takes the high road in a campaign, treating his opponent with dignity and respect even when his opponent doesn’t extend the same to him.
I want a representative who is above party tribalism and will work with colleagues of all persuasions to solve our state’s problems.
I want a representative who respects and believes in the electorate.
For 16 years District 31 has had that representative. His name is Paul Seaton.
