Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of August 26, 2019.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am. I join Michael each week on Tuesday’s show, from 6:20-7am, for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues.
This week our Top 3 are these: 1) both the ADN and NewsMiner editorial pages throw in with the Top20% hook, line and sinker, by calling for PFD cuts without even addressing other revenue options first (at 2:00); 2) going in the opposite direction from the ADN and NewsMiner, a newly revealed poll shows the majority of Alaskans oppose PFD cuts and favor using other revenue measures (12:26); 3) our initial thoughts on the new oil tax initiative (22:14); and in the bonus round, Michael and I talk about the Governor’s new communication efforts (33:19).
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.
