As a property and business owner, wife, mother, and volunteer for many local causes in the Mat-Su Valley and across Alaska, Lynn believes strongly that we need to work on controlling spending, creating much-needed jobs, preserving our personal freedoms, and reducing unnecessary and onerous regulations that block business development.
More and Higher Paying Jobs
Better Roads and Infrastructure
Responsible Resource Development
A Message from Lynn - Gattis gets it!
I grew up homesteading in the Gulkana area, raised on the belief that hard work yields results, to use resources wisely, and to not be wasteful. That lifestyle made me the “CAN DO” person I am today. I am grateful to Alaska for the opportunities given to me. All Alaskans should have the same opportunity for prosperity. This is what drives me to represent my district. As a business person, it’s easy to recognize that government has room for improvement.
Energy development, storage, and consumption remain the most important issues for our state today; we need affordable energy and the jobs that accompany its exploration and extraction – be it natural resources or alternative forms of energy. I support an Alaskan gas pipeline now!
A well-prepared workforce is what will continue to make Alaska a great place to be. Through our schools, public, trade, charter, or home school, we need to educate the future Alaskan worker. I support a parent’s right to choose their child’s education, so our children can succeed in whatever endeavor they choose.
Better roads are needed in our communities. We live in a large state with no way to economically get to our much needed resources. For too long, we have driven on dangerous and inadequate road systems that risk our lives and keep us from transporting ourselves and our commodities.
I am not a “politician,” I am an Alaskan who will represent my district by being fair, honest, and committed. I humbly ask for your vote.
I am very disappointed with Governor Walker's proclamation renaming "Patriot Day" to "Commemoration Day.”
In 2001, Congress passed a resolution designating 9/11 as a day to honor the individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Since that time, every POTUS and every governor has paid tribute accordingly.
Governor Walker's actions show a callous disrespect for the police, firefighters, and other first responders that gave their lives on that tragic day - not to mention the brave men and women who have given their lives since in the Middle East protecting our nation's freedoms.
Regardless of Governor Walker's proclamation, I will stand with the rest of the nation - honoring and respecting our Patriots - and I will never diminish the importance of their service and sacrifice.
May God bless our men and women in uniform and their families. We will never forget. ... See MoreSee Less
