In our April 7 episode, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar discuss what happened in Anchorage’s local elections now that all the votes are in, what is going on in the state budget and PFD reform efforts, and the state of internet privacy protection legislation. We are also joined by Assemblyman-elect Felix Rivera to talk about what he saw and heard on the campaign trail and his thoughts as a member of the LGBT community on legislators objecting to letting Drew Phoenix serve on the Alaska Human Rights Commission because he is transgender.
