About the Voices for Vision Budget Survey Report
With the Voices for Vision Budget Survey, Governor Walker and Lieutenant Governor Mallott sought to access two of the state’s most important groups of stakeholders, the public employees charged with ensuring responsible stewardship of public resources, and the citizens of Alaska who expect public servants make strategic and effective decisions about how those resources are managed.
This report is an overview of the Voices for Vision survey results, providing an examination of the suggestions by both public employees and Alaska citizens in relation to the efficient and effective use of State of Alaska resources in this time of declining revenue.
The surveys were organized into four Top Level Themes that respondents were able to address in relation to the various areas of state government. The Themes of Additional Revenue, Spending Cuts, Partnerships, and Restructuring were the context for open ended comments where public employees and Alaska citizens were encouraged to be creative and innovative in their responses. The information in this report will serve to inform public servants at all levels in their important effort to shape the path to a strong economic future for Alaska.
A total of 2,778 surveys were completed with the following breakdown:
- Public employees completed 1,836 surveys
- Alaska Citizens completed 942 surveys
- Total number of comments summarized and categorized was 4,000 Governor Walker and Lieutenant Governor Mallott are reviewing the survey results now and will announce their five favorite ideas soon.
