Proposition 1 is a vote on how we will share our oil wealth with the oil corporations. It’s been called the “Second Vote for Statehood,” because the outcome is so important for funding our roads and schools and services.
When I cut through all the misinformation, the best evidence Proposition 1 is good for Alaskans is this: BP, Exxon and ConocoPhillips are spending tens of millions of dollars to influence the vote. The oil corporations know it’s just smart business to spend tens of millions to get billions in return. Exxon alone made $9 billion in profits in just the first three months of 2014.
If you believe Alaskans deserve a fair share, vote yes on proposition 1 on Aug. 19.
