Candidate State House District 9
I’m Pam Goode, a proud Deltana resident, running for State House District 9. My personal and professional information can be found on the Official Election Pamphlets (OEP) for 2014 and 2016.
The liberties we enjoy today are not just fought on the battlefield, they are fought everyday by
individuals you may or may not know. You'll most likely not be aware of what they do but rest
assure, they are out there on the front lines volunteering countless hours and resources
fighting the corrupt factions of government as a fellow Alaskan and American on their own
initiative. They are constitutional advocates that focus on accountability and defending liberty;
your liberty. I know this because I've met many of them and I happen to be one.
I’ve dedicated over 4-years taking a stand against issues I feel are a violation to our
unalienable rights. I hold elected/appointed officials accountable to their oath of office for
violating these rights and encourage others to do the same. Both the U.S. and Alaska
Constitutions form a foundation that is a fixed set of standards that is to be upheld and
defended not just by elected officials but by all of us. Those documents were written for us by
the framers to hold the government, a constitutional republic, accountable to their oath of
office and purpose, which is to secure our unalienable rights.
I’ve participated in countless public testimonies, phone calls, emails, meetings, candidacies,
and created a facebook group for tracking bills and sponsors to simplify accountability for
those with less time on their hands. Check out your one-stop Alaskan grassroots legislative
“we the people” site “HAC & SAC” which stands for “House Accountability Caucus &; Senate
Accountability Caucus.” During session it is all about legislative accountability and keeping a
The number one issue is the Budget as it effects all our lives, local economies, and future
Alaskans. The “we need more revenue” grab public discussion started in Fairbanks at the
Governor’s 3-day Sustainable Future Symposium (Delphi Meeting), 1.5 years ago, where
spending cut discussions were not allowed; only revenue discussions to fill the gap. I was
there! Solution: stand firm and say No. The problem is not revenue, it is spending.
Use the ISER/Goldsmith budget model target with “Governor Hammond’s Vision” to fix the
fiscal problem. This is a $4-billion Unrestricted General Fund (UGF) budget and usage of a
portion of the Earnings Reserve (ER) for essential government services to make up the
difference between current revenue and a $4-billion budget or less. Oil prices will slowly
return but not to the “wind fall” levels that allowed the unchecked increase in the cost & scope
of government during the last 10 years. For decades the Alaskan government operated at an
approximate budget of $2.5 billion, more or less. This was only 10 years ago. Confining
operating and capital costs to a $4-billion budget is not unreasonable. This model would
demand a fiscally conservative principled and disciplined government, Not using your PFD,
and Not using your earned income. No one can best spend and apply your time and money
Second is the escalating violation of privacy rights that should be protected according to the
Alaska Constitution, Article 1 Section 22 which all elected and appointed officials take an oath
to uphold and defend. These include, Facial recognition photos for Drivers License without
consent, ANSWERS (Common Core) database from preschool to workforce, Drug database,
Federally funded Private Water Well location efforts for online WELTS database, etc. Having
to file a state income tax would increase the governments ability to collect additional data they
currently do not have access to especially from those living in the unorganized borough.
Most are unaware of these infractions, I’m not.
Third, on November 16, 2015, an all day workshop for the Local Boundary Commission (LBC)
for Mandatory Borough formation via legislative review (against the will of the people) took
place. See Alaska Constitution Article 10 Section 12. I teleconferenced in and no other
legislative representative or candidate was present or ever has been for the years I’ve been
attending them. Guest speakers were: Vic Fisher (Alaska Constitution Framer), Clem Tillion
(Architect of the Mandatory Borough Act of 1960's), and Gary Wilkins (past legislator who
specifically negatively called out Delta Junction in his presentation). A proposed progressive
approach was to divide “the beast” called the unorganized borough into many unorganized
boroughs. Their terminology, not mine. A state tax assessor was present. You can contact
the LBC office for a copy of the audio and transcript. February 9 th , 2016 at the next LBC
meeting, I requested via public comment the resignation of two LBC Commissioners for
colluding against the will of the people; Alaska Constitution Article 1 Section 2. Unfortunately,
those LBC Commissioners have retained their seats.
Our district can hit the ground running and provide the leadership that has been missing!
Your support and vote can make that happen. I have a vote and a voice and I’m not afraid to
use either one to safeguard the way of life you have chosen and the level of privacy, freedom,
and liberty you live by.
Your Vote Matters!
