Anchorage, AK) – Ahead of his third State of the State address to Alaskans, Governor Mike Dunleavy has shared a brief video message and the topics of his speech. Due to complications created by the COVID-19 global pandemic, Governor Dunleavy will deliver his address virtually from his Anchorage office this evening, Thursday, January 28 at 7:00pm AKST.
In tonight’s address, Governor Dunleavy will highlight the need to guarantee the PFD for future generations, Alaska’s ability to be self-reliant, energy independent, maximize every opportunity, and potential to be a sovereign within the United States. Excerpts from the State of the State address – as prepared for delivery – can be found below:
- “As part of my Path Forward for Alaska, I’m asking that $5 billion, a portion of the earnings of this past year, be put toward pulling Alaskans out of a crisis the likes of which this generation has never faced.”
- “While we must continue to be an exporter of resources, we must also ensure that we have the capabilities to create and enhance new sectors of our economy to go it alone in the event of a future disaster.”
- “…maximizing opportunity is about more than standing up new industries. If we’re to move Alaska forward, we must provide our children with the quality education they deserve.”
- “I remain 100% committed to prosecuting the war on crime and supporting our frontline heroes. From our smallest villages to our largest cities, no Alaskan should be forced to live in fear.”
