During his more than 40-year career, Juneau pediatrician George Brown of Glacier Pediatrics has contributed to the identification and prevention of child abuse on at least three continents. Earlier this month, he received national recognition for his work.
For me, the critical issue in this year's race for governor is how Alaska treats kids. Fran Ulmer has proven she truly values Alaska's young people and understands how we as a state can promote our children's health and well-being. Fran has always been an advocate for children. In the last eight years alone she has been instrumental in establishing and supporting the Alaska Children's Trust fund, and has been outspoken in promoting the governor's children's agenda, including Denali Kidcare.
I recently introduced a bill to establish an Alaska Children's Trust Fund (SB 322) to help families save and invest their children's Permanent Fund Dividends in a trust fund for college expenses.
