Kay Rollison — Committed to a high quality of life in the neighborhood, and a candidate for House District 13.
I am your neighbor. Perhaps we have already met and chatted. I have spoken with many of my neighbors, and I know that the most important issues that we regularly face are those close to home. These issues come up repeatedly in our neighborhood…
- fixing pot holes
- speed bumps closer to where our children live and congregate
- snow removed so we can get to work
- community watch programs
- hunting and fishing allocations that ensure opportunity for meat and fish in our freezers
- gas price gouging when money is tight
- good education for our kids
- clean safe drinking water
- adequate property drainage
- protecting our PFD
- affordable, accessible health care
As you know, many of these are dealt with at the local municipal level, but there are things I can do as your representative in Juneau to help us with these concerns. I am committed to this neighborhood and to the quality of life of my neighbors. Please make a donation so I can win this election…really, so we can win this election. And while you are here, take a look at the rest of this website. You may find it entertaining, and you may find information you can use.
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
What a great race for the State House! I want to thank each and every one of you who participated, who voted, who gave your energy, support and words of encouragement to me and Gabrielle and Barbara. In our own ways, with the resources we had, we each worked hard for you to give you a choice and an opportunity for good representation and a strong voice in the State legislature.
Truly, we have a diverse, caring and energized neighborhood. I am proud to have had the opportunity to get to know you better, to hear your voices and interests and concerns. I know we can work across party lines to serve our community and help each other to have a better life. I saw it, I felt it and am blessed to be part of that spirit.
My congratulations to our new House Representative, Gabrielle Ledoux. May she serve us well and make us proud.
Sincerely and respectfully,
Muldoon’s very own Hennings family is pleased to invite local families to their Muldoon Halloween Extravaganza at 1240 Autumn Lane. Goulish festivities start a bit before dusk for the little kids, and after dusk for the older ones.
The choices in this election are not all that complicated. As a super voter, I pay attention to the issues and when in doubt, follow the money. It usually leads me to the crux of the matter and the motivation of the stakeholders. Nationally and in Alaska we see the same divide on the issues. Some say it’s the battle between “the haves and the have-nots.”
Three things jump out at me: 1) it’s the struggle of the many who barely “make a living” through ordinary income versus the few who “make a killing” through capital gains; 2) it’s the struggle by the many who give versus the few who give not; and 3) it’s about the kindnesses of a civil society versus corporate greed.
I decide what I want for America, for Alaska, for my family, my own soul’s growth and then vote accordingly. I’m sure you do the same.
I was interviewed by Alaska’s Political Insider on abc channels 13, 2, and 8, October 15. The Interview with me, Kay Rollison, begins about half way through. The first half of the program is an interview with G. Ladoux, who is running against me for the district 13 House seat in the state legislature. If you like skip to me in the second half, or see us both in action, compare us, and you decide who best represents your interests in our community!
A complex regulatory battle over how much money the owners of the trans-Alaska pipeline charge to ship crude is one step closer to being settled. Pending signoff from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the pipeline owners have agreed to set the depreciation rate for the pipeline at 2044. [See full article in Alaska Dispatch]
Let’s put our money in our communities’ health by investing in local renewable resources and projects and save many from lives of poverty and drug abuse… — Kay
JUNEAU, Alaska – Alcohol and drug abuse took a heavy toll on Alaska’s economy in 2010, according to a new report from McDowell Group, funded by the Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, Alaska Mental Health Board, and the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority.
The total estimated costs for 2010 attributable to alcohol and drug abuse was $1.2 billion. Costs by category include:

$50.5 million in traffic crash costs,
$217.7 million in criminal justice and protective services,
$237.3 million in health care, and
$13.2 million in public assistance and social services.
“This report puts the devastating impact of substance abuse on our state into concrete terms,” said Kate Burkhart, executive director of the Alaska Mental Health Board and Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. “It will inform public policy and help us measure the effectiveness of state and community prevention, treatment, and recovery programs.” Continue reading
