The Weekly Top 3 (10.31.2022)
Why #akleg candidates pushing “leftover” PFDs aren’t serious “Fiscal C’s,” where the K-12 funding debate goes off track & why describing the #ConCon vote as a PFD referendum concerns
Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind here at Alaskans for Sustainable Budgets — for the week of October 31, 2022.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on Facebook and YouTubeLive as well as via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6–8am. I join Michael weekly in the first hour of Tuesday’s show, from 6:25–7am, for a discussion between the two of us about our three issues.
This week our top 3 issues are these: 1) why we don’t consider Senate candidate Doug Massie — and other candidates who are advocating “left over” PFDs — serious fiscal conservatives (1:59), 2) where we believe the K-12 funding debate goes off track and what helps get it back on (15:03), and 3) why we are concerned when we hear some describe the #ConCon vote as a referendum on the PFD (24:14).
The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available both on our Spotify and Soundcloud pages. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
