Tony Knowles intends to "keep promises, honor commitments
and deliver benefits" to all Alaskan vererans. I am an
Alaskan veteran. I took a job with the state and was injured
on the job. Tony knowles says he is "squeaky clean."
Here are the "squeaky" facts.
My benefits from that accident were not delivered because Alaska's
Office of the Attorney General under Tony Knowles fabricated
facts. The OAG fabricated medical reports which resulted in denial
of benefits, and PERS claimed I should have been informed of
my rights from their Newsbreak letter. No such letter existed
during my time of employment. According to the State Constitution,
I should have been informed of my occupational disability PERS.
They all forgot that as a veteran, my life was on the line to
protect the freedom they enjoy. Eight thousand Alaskans are
fighting and dying to protect our way of life today. How will
they be treated when they return?
Tony Knowles and his Attorney General must believe that the State
Constitution is negotiable even though that State Constitution
tells the Workman's Compensation Division to comply with the
law, fully advising applicants of their rights. Mr. Knowles
sure does believe in the State Constitution...so much so that
he will "keep promises, honor commitments, and deliver benefits."
What happened to this veteran's benefits?
