I too am one of those people and to give a short synopsis I have lived here a total of 25 years and been back in Alaska as a legal resident since may of last year. Rather than take advantage and fudge things a bit I thought I should not even file for a PFD this year only to find out I will not even get a chance to speak my opinion about this subject much less receive my part of the energy assistance package.
On one hand I don't want to feel greedy but on the other I want my case heard individually and as a citizen of not only Alaska but the United States of America I have that right.
I have written several emails to our Senator Bert Stedman, Rep Kyle Johansen and Gov's representative, Jerry Burnett who's email I will provide at the end of this letter and I urge the rest of you concerned to write your local representatives.
Plain and simple it may cause temporary grief in the future for a few of our peers, however the long term rewards for those who have lived in the state and deserve a fair shot at the equal opportunity will far outweigh the short term effects.
The purpose of this letter is to start the petitioning process and gain 50,000 registered voters signatures by September 10th to put a temporary injunction on the checks from being distributed and or so the process of which people were based for their eligibility can be scrutinized through the legal system to start the process of a class action lawsuit for those whom were wrongfully deemed ineligible.
