Attacking our ferry system

Mike Dunleavy has repeatedly targeted Alaska’s marine highway system for budget cuts and reduced services. In 2021, Mike Dunleavy vetoed $8.5 million from our ferry budget. Dunleavy’s attempts to hobble Alaska’s ferry system are an assault on Southeast Alaska, where ferries are critical for economic opportunity, transportation, and food security.

Illegal loyalty pledges

As soon as he took office, Mike Dunleavy attempted to force state employees to sign illegal “loyalty pledges.” Those who did not were fired.

Judges determined that Dunleavy’s loyalty pledges violated the First Amendment, the Alaska State Constitution, and United States Constitution. Dunleavy wasted hundreds of thousands of Alaska tax dollars defending his loyalty pledges and providing compensation to those he illegally fired.

Economic stagnation

Rampant cronyism

Mike Dunleavy has repeatedly channeled Alaska state funds into the hands of political supporters and their children. In 2020, Dunleavy awarded the grandson of a major campaign donor an $8000-per-month no-bid contract. In 2021, Dunleavy created a frivolous $140,000-a-year state position for his former election campaign manager, and recently awarded the same individual a $50,000 state contract for consulting–while the individual was actively working on a pro-Dunleavy political campaign.

Mike Dunleavy’s record is clear: draconian budget cuts for those providing Alaska’s essential services, and lavish no-bid state contracts for his political allies.
