According to the Alaska Democratic Party, there are things that make Alaskans come together as one. There are also things that separate them to make them unique. There are things that the Party feels would be beneficial to the residents of Alaska. Some of them are:
Government responsibility – The Alaska Democratic Party believes that state government should be responsible to ensure the health, welfare and safety of all residents of the State. They should be supportive of Alaska’s human resources as well as natural resources. Whatever the residents have that belong to them, the government should help them find a way to keep it. The State’s infrastructure should remain solid and strong.
In the State of Alaska, the Democratic Party believes that all able-bodied residents should be employed. They also believe that their workplace should be free of any kind of assaults or harassment. The place where they are employed should be a place where job promotion is available to everyone, regardless of race, gender or religion. Discrimination of any kind should not be allowed in the workplace.
The Party believes that if an individual wants to be part of a union, they should be allowed to do so. This can help them to get better contracts with their employer. They should also be able to participate in union functions without the fear of being harassed or terminated by upper management. Union workers should be able to get better contracts when the time comes. They should not be discriminated against on the basis of wanting a new and improved contract.
The Democratic Party of Alaska believes in entrepreneurship. They also believe that there should be continued growth of new businesses in the state. In addition to that, the companies should be competitive. The focus is for the state to use the resources and keep the revenues reinvested here.
The Party believes that in order for the State of Alaska to have a healthy economic future, the state should be able to have constant developments and investments. This should come from the State’s human and natural resources. The State of Alaska is one of the major states that rely on the environment to keep the economy going. The state believes in renewable energy, development of minerals, natural gas and different resources of oil.
Since Alaska is also known for it’s fish, they favor local owned fisheries. They also believe in the protection of local fish and seafood products. As far as real estate is concerned, they believe in protecting undeveloped land; however, they also believe in protecting the rights of property owners.
The environment is very important to the state of Alaska. The State Democratic Party is committed to keeping Alaska clean and healthy. They believe that all residents of the state should live amongst clean air and water. They are in favor of any funds that are allocated toward keeping the environment safe. They believe in protecting their state by conserving energy, recycling and reducing waste of any kind.
The Alaska Democratic Party seeks to keep these initiatives on the forefront of the group’s agenda. These are things that can help all of the residents of the state.
