My Turn: A common neighbor as legislator

When George McGuan decided to run for statehouse, it seemed like he might just be filling the Democratic Party void that's let Rep. Cathy Munoz run unopposed the past two elections.

My Turn: Voting as a civic duty

I favor instituting compulsory voting in the United States. Then we'd actually hear from (nearly) every registered voter.

My Turn: Your vote is free speech- think before you cast

While in East Africa in 2005, one could observe a fledgling democracy. One Kenyan pundit wrote about democracy being more than just voting. We can observe the same public behavior here in Alaska in 2014.

Language about wasted votes is self-defeating

Two polls released last week indicate the race for Alaska's U.S. Senate seat is up for grabs. The Anchorage Daily News described it as a dead heat and three-way horserace. While we're accustomed this type of language during political campaigns, democracy isn't a spectator sport. And contrary to the results on Election Day, it's not over when it's over.

Extension of 90 day session not needed

I read in the news media lately about extending the legislative session. I would disagree with the need for longer sessions. Remember this is a public mandate. So is ANGDA (Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority). These are two laws the people wanted and are authorized to do so by our Constitution.
