Opinion: Alaska needs more legislators like Les Gara

Things got done under his watch.

Alaska needs more legislators like Les Gara.

[Gara: Gov. Dunleavy’s budget and the damage it would cause]

When he was a representative in the legislature and vice chair of the House Finance Committee, things got done. Now, since it is an all Republican-led Senate, there’s no respect for the the people of Alaska.

If a person is not rich or pro oil, they are not listened to on the Senate floor or in committee.
