The Weekly Top 3 (9.17.2018)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of September 17, 2018.

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular segment on The Michael Dukes Show. I join Michael on the Show each Tuesday from, now 6:20-7am for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am.

This week our Top 3 issues are these:

* First, as the candidates start settling into their campaign fiscal positions we examine what they are (at 2:26),

* Second, we look at the question of how much did the #AKleg really approve in spending last session and what does FY 2020 look like (13:00), and

* Third, we examine AGDC’s recent agreement with Exxon; how far does it push the project forward (23:45).

At the end (31:00) we also include discussions we had with Michael during the breaks about what’s driving Mike Dunleavy’s evolving fiscal plan and about Peter Micciche’s recent, election-year conversion to “PFD Defender.”

The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available on our Soundcloud page here. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.

  1. How could the older generation categorize their blatant lack of budget forecasting as a lack of “income” and not ridiculous amount of money going god knows where; its completely ludacris to think that this problem did not arise from greedy politicians with no respect for future generations of Alaskans. The State of Alaska should be in a complete 360 budget position it is in today but the blatant negligence of spending the oil and gas funds paid out, not all of us are drinking the cool-aid the state is feeding us. The budget deficit my generation has been left with makes my stomach turn! Thank you Mike and Brad for giving us straight information.
