Chamber report card: Alaskans deserve better
Corporate influence on Alaska politics is growing. Corporate agendas are sometimes good, but sometimes conflict with the interests of Alaskans. Their job, by statute, is to maximize corporate profits. Our job is to represent our "shareholders" -- you. The most recent attempt to pressure legislators into toeing a corporate line this coming session -- and to get us to make a "pledge of corporate allegiance" -- is a fake "report card" the Chamber of Commerce and others just issued.
