What I know about Mark Begich
I know who I am going to vote for as our next governor and I know why.
I know, after observing Mark Begich meeting with 14 groups a day, advocating for legislation in the Senate, and listening to veterans as long as they cared to speak, that he is a servant leader.
I know that Begich looks beyond political labels to focus on solving problems. He was a No Labels Problem Solver in the Senate working successfully with Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders.
I know that in government experience matters. Begich has a proven record in reducing crime, supporting our well-being, and increasing economic opportunities. From Alaskan small business owners, governors, and federal agency leaders; he has cultivated relationships to support good decisionmaking.
I know that Begich not only talks about respect for women and diversity but lives it, as seen in his devoted staff, supporters and friends.
I know Begich has the vision and leadership to work across party lines developing a smarter budget process. It will save state employees thousands of hours and assure that legislative shenanigans cannot hold education funding hostage discouraging the most effective resource for quality education — our teachers.
I know, as an education advocate, that Mike Dunleavy is an educator who does not support public education.
I know for certain that I will be voting Mark Begich for governor with great pride and confidence. I hope you will, too.
