  14. I feel that there is enough gouging in our dividend checks with out our permition where does that money go does anybody know.If a yes vote goes through the governor and his henchmen will chisll away at our pfd's and no body will git one ever agan I as a registered voter i think it is time to put big business in thier place and tell them we are not going take it any more.

  15. I dont believe that the state government should tap into the pfd fund.I am a single parent of two children, I live and work in the community and live in the Mat-Su valley and when october comes around I have the chance to buy my children the things that I cant during the year by capping the fund would be financially a hardship...there are alot of people in the valley each october who depend on the check to pay for a year supply of fuel, groceries and to pay for the neccessities of live in order to live, I will be voting NO on the special election and hope that everyone does as well.
  16. It would sure be nice if the people backing the permanent fund vote "yes" campaign would invest their money in something that is worthwhile to our communities say youth programs, public awareness or the deficit instead of throwing away all that money. But I guess that's government for you
  17. If you let the goverment tap into the PFD, then you are telling them that they can use your money to fall back on anytime they need it. And God know's they need our money all the time. make the goverment do their job and give us some alternatives, instead of tellng us "this is the only option"
