I support Alan Dick for district 38 Representative, which stretches from Goldstream in Western Fairbanks to the mouth of the Yukon. He is the only legislator to stand up to the State regarding our veterinary services in the villages and for the fisherman.
I am an Alaska Native fisherman, and, for background, I have been attending state Board of Fisheries meetings my entire life, so I have a pretty good idea how meetings are run.
I have also attended Alaska Veterinary Board meetings on behalf of the villages and know that they are a dictatorship working for the financial interests of the veterinary business owners while the villages go without.
The Alaska vet board has gone so far as to make it impossible for a traveling Christian veterinary group whose mission is to spread the Word and provide free veterinary services to under-served communities in collaboration with local churches.
We are not asking for a handout from the city veterinarians.
All we asked is that they stop blocking legitimate services to our villages that are no-cost to the state and let our fishermen catch enough fish to feed their families.
Rep. Alan Dick says Alaska has a treaty with Canada that guarantees a certain number of the kings salmon and now we need a treaty for our own people. I like that idea.
Why should we be the only ones kept from fishing?
It doesn’t matter what party you usually vote, Alan can protect our rights, is in the Majority and can get projects funded and bills passed.
I invite you to vote for Alan Dick, no city Legislator is going to stand up for us the way he has.
