Fixing Roads and Schools
Critical Local Upgrades Subject to Governor’s Veto – Please Help!
My office, along with Senator Kevin Meyer and Representative Charisse Millett will hold a Constituent Meeting and free BBQ tomorrow evening. I look forward to hearing from you, since you are the eyes and ears in our neighborhoods.
We will have information on road construction projects in our district, legislative news and answers to all your questions.

· 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
· Ruth Arcand Park , 3766 Abbott Road.
FIXING ROADS AND SCHOOLS
After a lot of effort and teamwork with other legislators, I succeeded in securing funding in the state’s capital budget for several critical road and school projects in our area.
Now, we need your help to prevent a veto.
Road repairs funded in our area include:
· Reconstruction of Margaret and Papa Circles, and parts of 75th
· Design for reconstruction of Branche Drive
· Storm drain reclamation for parts of Rovenna and 74th.
· General road reclamation funds to fix streets in the worst condition
If you would like details on each of these important projects, please get in touch with me!
Funds in the capital budget would stop flooding on Margaret Circle, and relieve the burden on homeowners.

All of the schools serving families in our area received funds for numerous educational tools and facilities upgrades. Wolverine Park is also funded for a much-needed facelift. You can see the list of all projects funded in the capital budget here, starting on page 70.
If fixing our roads and schools are important to you, please contact the Governor TODAY and let him know you support keeping these funds in the capital budget.

Representative Chris Tuck meets with former Governor Sheffield and Port of Anchorage Director about ways to reign in cost overruns at the port. Problems at the port were the subject of a recent Anchorage Daily News article. The port has received hundreds of thousands of state dollars, and mismanagement is a major fiscal concern.
2nd Special Session
Today, I am back in Juneau under our second special session this year. The Legislature is again considering to save the State’s Coastal Management Program. If the Coastal Zone Management Program is allowed to sunset June 30th, Alaska would be the only coastal State without a coastal management program and stands to lose significant Federal dollars used to take care of our shorelines. Although I hope we will be done today, we have until Thursday for a solution.
While this should have been done during regular session, it is important the program be extended. This is the best way Alaska can defend its interests and local communities can help shape decisions to match Alaskan sensibilities.
I’m here for you,
Alaska State Representative

Reduce Pollution with a Rain Garden
The Municipality of Anchorage, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife, service has developed the Rain Garden Grant Reimbursement Program to give residents technical and financial support in building a rain garden. The MOA will reimburse half your cost for installing a rain garden up to $750.
Gardens designed to treat water from large contributing areas, like school-sized roofs or parking lots, may qualify for even more funds at the 50% reimbursement rate.
