Governor Palin Vetoes School Funds, but Favors 'Education' on Wolves

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / October 1, 2007

 

Gov. Sarah Palin was quick to veto a long list of funds for Alaska's schools, but has refused to veto a $400,000 appropriation to "educate" voters about the state's predator control program -- one that Alaskans have twice voted against. What does this say about her fiscal responsibility? What does this say about her education priorities? And what does this say about her supposed willingness to listen to Alaskans and uphold an ethical democratic process?

When shooting wolves from planes is considered more important than educating our children, something is seriously wrong. What's more, this "education" campaign, a thin disguise for government lobbying, is suspiciously timed to coincide with a citizens ballot initiative on this very subject. Gov. Palin needs to respect voters and put a stop to this ethically questionable misuse of public money.
