I served with Bill Walker for four years and witnessed leadership built with integrity, compassion, and care for every single Alaskan. The dedication to improve relations with the first peoples of this place has not been matched by any other governor. Bill leads with a steady commitment to building relationships with people and organizations across our state. I know Bill and Heidi are the right team to reestablish the stability that Alaska needs and to restore trust in our state’s leadership.”

I am proud to support the Walker Drygas ticket-candidates who understand and support fishing, ferry and coastal needs and concerns.”

Pat Branson

I am supporting the Walker/Drygas team because, having worked with both of them, I believe they are the team most likely to win support of Alaskans and lead our state forward to economic stability, opportunity for working families, and science based healthcare policies.”

Working with Governor Bill Walker during my Legislative service, we did not always agree. In fact, we vigorously disagreed in some areas. But Governor Walker stayed in the discussion. Rather than condemning those who disagreed with him, he continued to listen and talk. Governor Walker remained in Juneau during contentious discussions and required his staff to stay in Juneau as well. Governor Walker worked hard on steps toward fiscal balance, making hard decisions without regard for his re-election future. Governor Walker has demonstrated his focus on doing what’s right for Alaska, not politics. I believe Bill Walker has the heart for Alaskans that will help us together get through the challenges and find clarity for our productive future. He has the commitment to show up and do the work, the presence to listen and understand, and the courage to do the right thing for Alaskans.”

I support Governor Walker, Bill, because he’s never wavered in the face of adversity, he makes his decisions based on whether it’s good for Alaska, he sees the best in Alaska and works to build a better stronger Alaska for our future generations. He knows we need to all work towards a better Alaska and builds the relationships needed to see it through, recognizing Alaskas first people can and should be an integral part of that success he envisions.”

I am proud to support Bill Walker and Heidi Drygas for Governor and Lt. Governor. Together their commitment to always doing the right thing for Alaskans is unparalleled. A homegrown team, you can count on Walker and Drygas to restore trust in Alaska’s government, faithfully honor our constitutional rights, and build a stronger Alaska for generations to come.”

Rep. Ivy Spohnholz

I trust Bill. He is an honest, hardworking and courageous Alaskan who puts Alaska’s best interests above his own. Unlike some candidates, Bill tells you the truth, based on facts, not fiction.”
