To the editor:
The big issue in the upcoming election is the $2 billion giveaway. Led by Gov. Parnell, the former oil lobbyist, it is attempting to take money that now goes to the state and literally just hand it over to the oil industry.
For a big state with a small budget, $2 billion will be a huge hit to the budget. It seems unbelievable that any candidate running for office would support this plan that takes large amounts of money that helps their constituents and transfers that wealth into the oil companies swimming pools of money. But that is exactly what they’re planning to do.
Not only are they going to give this money away but there are no strings attached.
Who are these candidates? They’re the exact same ones who got big campaign donations from big oil. Pete Kelly, Tammie Wilson, John Coghill, Alan Dick and David Pruhs.
The question all of us must be aware of, dig into and fully understand is “Who supports this insane giveaway and who’s against it?” That is truly the question for this election. Please fully research this before you vote.
