Campaign themes


Isaacson's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • High Cost of Energy
Excerpt: " I have long advocated to elected officials, to groups and in opinion pieces published across the state that the Interior and Rural Alaskan Energy Crisis may be quickly quenched, even BEFORE this winter—without expensive infrastructure, expensive switch-overs, or expensive one-time taxable benefits to residents"
  • Top Policy Issue
Excerpt: "My top policy issue is stated in Alaska Constitution Article 8, Section 2 and 12 “The legislature shall provide for the utilization, development, and conservation of all natural resources belonging to the State, including land and waters, for the maximum benefit of its people,” including the issuance of leases"
  • Oil Taxes
Excerpt: "Alaska has one of the highest combined tax rates on oil production on the planet. While the State gives generous credits for exploration, it needs to go further and reduce production taxes in order to spur production competition. "
  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "Current spending levels are NOT sustainable. The operating budget needs to be trimmed but an emphasis must be placed on growing the private sector and the diversification of the economy, therefore the capital budget needs to have an emphasis on municipalities, access and energy."
  • Reduce the Budget
Excerpt: "Cut spending, reduce burden on the private sector, if we must use the CBR. Revenues go upside down partly because we rely on one source of income and we try to pay everyone’s bills. Alaska Constitution, Article 8, requires the State to encourage the settlement of (all) the land and the Legislature to “provide for the utilization, development” of our resources."
