Strong, Safe Neighborhoods. Alaskans need to feel safe in their homes, neighborhoods, and places of business. Laddie's 17-year career with the Department of Public Safety brings the commitment and experience needed to make sure public safety is job number one.
A Strong Alaskan Economy. Laddie believes that a strong, growing, and diverse economy is key to a bright future for Alaska. He will work hard to make that future a reality for all Alaskans.
Smaller, Sustainable Government. Government should live within its means before taking money out of the pockets of hard-working Alaskans.
Education. Promoting quality education through stable and equitable funding, putting educators first and supporting vocational education.
Veterans and Seniors. Two extremely important priorities that should be funded accordingly. As a former State Director for Veterans Affairs, Navy SEAL and Vietnam veteran I believe, without question, all veterans should receive the benefits and care promised to them. Many seniors have found access to Medicare providers to be an ongoing problem to health care in Alaska. Assisted living and affordable prescription drugs are areas of additional concerns.
