(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - In order for our state to responsibly manage our fiscal decline, I am seeking out opinions and fresh ideas from our district concerning our state’s revenue options. I have designed a survey listing different revenue options, as proposed by individual Alaskans and the Department of Revenue.

You may have seen this survey before – I handed it out at Bearfest in Wrangell and Blueberry Festival in Ketchikan. I have also been going door-to-door looking for responses. This online edition is a quick, anonymous supplement to my in-person surveying, so I can hear from as many people as possible across our district.

I will use your responses to shape my votes in the upcoming legislative session.

Please fill out this short survey at



Ortiz is an independent member of the Alaska House of Representatives, who has since 2015 represented the 36th District. He is the only independent in the Alaska State Legislature.
