Rep. Sara Rasmussen (R)
Alaska’s 22nd District — Anchorage (Sand Lake/Kincaid)
I’ve been a conservative my entire life -- not just because I was raised that way, but because I believe that the core principles of conservatism are best equipped to solve our society’s problems. Capitalism and entrepreneurship bring people out of poverty better than government does. Limited taxation reinforces the truth that Alaskans know how to spend their money better than government does. Government should be small, focused, and efficient. And right now, it isn’t.
In the immediate, we have to deal with crime and the budget. And while it’s always tempting for government to spend more money, I’m advocating for legislative restraint. Until we cut our spending back to essential and necessary government services (education, infrastructure, public safety), we have no business asking Alaskans for more money.
I didn’t run for office to tell my constituents what I want to do in District 22. I want to listen first, and talk second. But I want to make sure everything I do in Juneau improves the overall, long-term positions of Alaskans, and gives future generations every opportunity to succeed.
