Recall Dunleavy Committed to Alaska
Unlike countless people-powered initiatives in the Lower 48 that have shuttered in the face of COVID-19, Recall Dunleavy continues with innovative ideas, steadily collecting signatures during this pandemic.
Alaska is empowered with a viable recall. If we want change on a national level, we lead this change by first upending the tenure of Governor Dunleavy, right here in our great state.
Governor Dunleavy has not become more competent, more ethical, nor more capable over the last year. He has simply become better at slipping unpopular actions under the radar during a distracting time for Alaskans.
In 2019, the recall effort was not born of anger or frustration over the last election, but rather in shock and disbelief over the Governor’s blatant disrespect for Alaska’s constitution, incompetence, inability to do the job required, and his lack of basic budgeting abilities.
A group of committed Alaskans, including Republicans, Independents, Non-Partisans, and Democrats, watched in dismay as Governor Dunleavy weakened and dismantled nearly everything he touched; from constitutional separation of powers, cronyism, to dignified support to our seniors and students across all levels of education – and we knew we had to do something about it.
In February and early March 2020, the second round of signature gathering kicked off and Alaskans organized events around the state. Shortly after the launch of the petition phase, Covid-19 forced the cancellation of large gatherings, and signature collection naturally slowed as Alaskans chose to stay home.
Understandably, signature gathering has slowed down. However, progress has been steady throughout the spring and summer. We will continue collecting signatures because our commitment to Alaska and our Constitution have not wavered in the slightest.
The recall’s tireless, dedicated Alaskan supporters continue to believe that our state needs to replace Governor Dunleavy. We will carry on collecting signatures in order to guarantee all Alaskans are free to make their own choice on who will lead us through the challenging economic recovery ahead.
