Resource Development

Resource development has been decimated by the Walker Administration. While the state pushes through the Governor's economically ill-advised gas pipeline project, it has neglected immediate opportunities that could solve the fiscal crisis quickly.

I worked as a paramedic on an oil platform in the Cook Inlet, and I've seen firsthand how serious the industry is about safety and the environment.Alaska is a resource state, and our laws and policies should reflect that.

As your next representative, I will:

  • Work to diminish the influence of outside environmental groups that keep us from taking advantage of our resources
  • Introduce legislation to incentivize companies to invest in and explore Alaska's resource marketplace
  • Do my part to put our state back on solid fiscal ground, and keep investors interested.
