Here are some questions I'd like to see answered by gubernatorial candidates:
* Alaskans have twice rejected aerial wolf control. Would you respect the people and end this abomination?
* A minority of Alaskans are represented by the current Board of Game structure. Would you support creating a new Board of Wildlife to represent all Alaskans?
* Are you in favor of cyanide-using gold mines, especially the Pebble project?
* Would you support development of more wind and solar power projects, especially in the Bush communities and on Fire Island?
* Would you support returning wildlife enforcement to a separate state division?
* Do you support the use of herbicides and pesticides in Alaska?
* Do you support the Juneau "road to nowhere," Knik Arm or Gravina bridges? If so, what is your payment plan to maintain these projects in the future after they are built?
* Would you support returning habitat permitting to the Department of Fish and Game?
* Do you have a plan for dealing with the impacts of global warming on Alaska?
* What underlying philosophy will determine the direction you wish to take Alaska?
Before we vote, we want answers, but will the media ask these questions?
