Senator Giessel, Rebecca Logan and Senator Wielechowski participated in “The Future of ACES Debate” Thur, Jan. 12. With more than 175 people in attendance a straw poll was taken at the end of the debate. Results: 75 for changing Aces, 18 opposed.
The word from those in attendance is that Senator Geissel did a fantastic job and Alaskans are fortunate that she is speaking up for change. Rebecca Logan continues to be a strong voice for tax reform and made three points: 1) Keep your eye on the prize: Increased production; 2) Don’t confuse activity with result: Increased investment, exploration and more jobs doesn’t mean increased production; and 3) Watch out for logical fallacies: The opposition continues to draw false conclusions from the “facts” that they present.
