A Voting Day Letter To Critical Thinking Citizens
Dear Anchoragians (Anchorageites?):
It’s voting day.
It’s voting day because you really can’t vote in person. There are 3 locations to vote
: City Hall (hah!), the Loussac library, and the Town Center in Eagle River. Didn’t know that, or you plan to stand in a 3+ hour long line on ‘voting day’ to vote? Ergo, today IS voting day.
The Day of Reckoning
*I need your vote for Anchorage*
No, not for me, but for those who will stand in front of the Monolithic block of leftists that run our City, both on the Assembly and School District. America has always been a country where we welcome diverse opinions, views and cultures. We kept that view of self-determination because we believe in the infinite value of each individual, individual liberty and limited government.
What we see now from the left: Critical Race Theory, Defund the Police, Cancel Culture (you speak out, you lose your job), stopping debate by screaming down opponents (take a look at college campus activities lately?), weak on crime, weak on education, go $67 million over budget for the Anchorage School District, and upending our strong mayoral form of government with liberal Assembly supermajorities.
It’s time to vote. Right now, today, this very minute. We have a good group of common-sense folks running who can help to restore the balanced approach that Anchorage has enjoyed in the past:
Ries and Cox: School Board Candidates
Cross, Vazques, Henslee, Taylor, Sulte: Assembly Candidates
There’s a fly in the soup!
BTW: if you are a private-sector union member, do you REALLY support leftists candidates? You are for radical environmentalists killing jobs, big-tech controlling speech, mask mandates, travel restrictions, vaccine passports? Well, I guess I never knew you. You don’t think independents, conservatives, and liberty minded-folks are on your side? You couldn’t be more wrong. We ARE your side.
This is not time to shut up, give up, or put up with failure. It’s time to show up.
