Compass Piece

My piece on ethics is one of today's Compass columns in the ADN. The central point:

Here's an idea: As a gracious final act on the Alaska political stage, the governor should call a third and final special session devoted specifically to ethics reform.

It would allow those lawmakers who claim to want to pass new ethics regulations a chance to address the issue exclusively. It would allow the public to learn more about how Juneau works and the relationship between lobbyists and lawmakers. It would bring into the open a discussion about the Veco investigation that has so far been confined to rumors passed among Alaskans who are politically connected.

If you're coming to this site for the first time, welcome! Glad to have you here and please, consider coming back some time.
