The Weekly Top 3 (7.18.2022)

We con’t our look at the Governor’s #akelect, our take on Gov Dunleavy’s spin on the FY23 budget & why are we spending $100K on a lawsuit when an AG opinion would resolve the issue

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 July 18, 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) we continue the discussion of what some recent polling tells us about the upcoming Governor’s race (2:02); 2) we discuss a recent op-ed by the Governor trying to spin the FY23 budget as a “win” for Alaskans (23:25); and 3) we look at a legislative proposal to spend $100,000 on a “friendly” lawsuit with the Administration (35:04).

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.
