He feels your pain

Gov. Bill Walker addressed the Alaska Federation of Natives convention and zeroed in on Alaska’s budget deficit and his decision to cut this year’s dividend by more than half. He said Alaska is drawing down its reserves at about $12 million daily. “I cannot tell you, I cannot describe to you adequately how difficult of […]

When will he learn?
