“What are your thoughts on revenues, budget reductions, spending caps, and the future of the PFD?

“What programs and services do you value?

“Should state spending be measured by inputs or outcomes?

“What natural resource opportunities do you support and see in your area and across the state?

“What are some ideas you may have that I, or the Legislature, have not thought of?”

The Governor’s Conversations with Alaskans town hall events are open to the public. Location details are as follows. Additional public events will be announced in the near future.
