Former Labor Commissioner Heidi Drygas was in Sitka for the Alaska Travel Industry Association conference this week. Drygas is running on a ticket with former Governor Bill Walker, and if elected would serve as Lieutenant Governor.
Former Gov. Bill Walker says he vetoed half the Permanent Fund Dividend in 2016 because the legislature lacked the courage to do so. "We need generational thinking," Walker says. "We need to think beyond the next election."
