Gara: We need smart leadership, not false rhetoric, to end this pandemic

We need to work with leaders and experts from local communities, to calmly get people in those communities the truth instead of riling up opposition to safe practices.

Here are facts he left out in praising the job he’s done.


TURNER: We need health care leadership now

We have waited long enough for real leadership. With the virus’ spread across Alaska, the country, and throughout the world, we cannot wait any longer. Xavier Becerra is the right person at the right time and he deserves the support of ALL senators. To delay his appointment is to prolong our suffering, and put millions of Americans’ lives in jeopardy.
