Rep. Lance Pruitt (R)
Alaska’s 27th District — Anchorage
It has been an incredible honor to represent you for the last 8 years. During that time, I fought to protect both your safety and your pocket book. You have a right to be safe from crime, which is why I OPPOSED SB 91. The delay in addressing the most disturbing parts of SB 91 has been frustrating, and decisive action is needed now along with more legislators in office who will fight to keep Alaskans safe. We must prioritize the needs of law enforcement and the rights of victims of crime over those who choose to flaunt the rights of law-abiding citizens.
The size and scope of government is still too large in spite of our reduced revenues. During my first term on the Finance committee, I chaired two department subcommittees that saw some of the largest reductions, with one seeing spending reduced over two years by over 50 percent. Core services still remained intact with these large reductions. These last two years, my colleagues and I sponsored hundreds of budget amendments to curb the growth proposed by the current out of touch majority. A long-term fiscal plan must continue reductions, and include a meaningful spending cap that will protect and preserve the PFD before any new revenues are discussed.
There is still more work ahead of us, and as a lifelong East Anchorage resident with a proven track record of fighting for our community, I am grateful to have your trust in Juneau.
