On Aug. 2, I called Representative Louise Stutes, R- Kodiak, to tell her that I couldn’t vote for her if she was going to abandon her party and join the Democrats again in January. Louise told me flat out that she intended to rejoin the Republican majority if she were reelected. With her assurance, I told her that I would vote for her — and I did.
Well, as far as I’m concerned, she broke her word. She voted against Healy Republican Representative David Talerico for Speaker of the House, joined forces for a time with that loose cannon from Kenai, Representative Gary Knopp, and finally feathered her own nest by voting for Republican Bryce Edgmon —a Democrat with identity issues from Dillingham.
Will some upstanding, genuine conservative from District 32 please step forward and run against Stutes in 2020? Please! You are desperately needed.
