Take Back the Senate, Alaska!
Remember the good old days of the Senate Bipartisan working group, where legislators from both parties chaired committees, and worked together to accomplish things? Divisive wedge issues were shelved, and the Senate work was focused on things we could do together. Back then the fringe group of Republicans who refused to work with Democrats formed their own minority and sat in the corner snapping blue crayons and not doing any work.
Well, Sean Parnell got his way after new district lines were drawn and we ended up with one party in control of the Senate and the House, and they have had a field day ushering in some really bad legislation. The pouters in the corner are now running the show.
The good news is that the lines have been redrawn again, and now we stand a good chance of getting back to a legislature that sees fit to work together for the good of the state, instead of one-party rule, and kowtowing to the oil companies and the governor.
So, what can you do to help?
