If you are a frequent reader of the work of the Alaska Policy Forum, you will know that we highly value government and campaign transparency. To that end, we are pleased to introduce a new series which uncovers the web of Outside money flowing into Alaska in support of Ballot Measure 1. While it is true that there are a few Alaskan players in the “Yes on 1 – Stand for Salmon” campaign, Alaskans deserve to know that most of the money propping up those Alaskans is coming from Outside. Once again, as is so frequently the case at election time, Outsiders are trying to influence what happens in our state.
Take a look at our new webpage and see just who is seeking to impact state policy from Outside. We’ll be updating the site with new articles and information over the coming weeks. Pass it on!
