Tyler Ivanoff for AK House District 39
Hello, I’m Tyler Ivanoff and I am running for the Alaska State Legislature for House District 39. I’m running because I’m here to stand up for all communities in our great district.
I understand how it is to live in a small, rural community. I understand the successes and the struggles of our people. The cost of living is high. Airfare is high. Housing shortages impact our people. The Unemployment rate throughout the region is sky high, and jobs are scarce. Many communities like Shishmaref still have no running water. Turnover rates in our School Districts effect our student’s education. These are the real problems that we face today.
District 39 is huge, and has many cultures: Yupik, Cupik, Koyukon, Inupiaq, and also lifelong Alaskans with diverse cultural backgrounds who only know Alaska as their home. Real People, Our People. Since time immemorial we have survived off the land and flourished. Our problems shouldn’t stop us from flourishing.
I will fight to continue to improve Education in our district. Not only shall we educate our kids to pursue a college degree, but encourage them to pursue a course in a Trade as well. Teacher turnover rate is very high in our communities. We need to come up with solutions as a state to solve this problem.
Nome as a hub plays a crucial role in Arctic Travel in Marine Waterways, and it’s Port is important.
We need to help our communities find ways to become economically self-sustaining and stable.
This year the Alaska Legislature has run amuck, and have decided to dip into the pockets of Alaskans. We need to solve our budget problems to stop this from happening. Over $1.2 Billion of Tax Credits have been given to Oil Companies. We need to come up with a solution so that both sides can win!
By voting me into office, I can promise you that I will stand up and fight for our people!
On Tuesday, August 18, 2020 vote for Tyler Ivanoff for District 39
