It’s time for a couple of predictions. Gov. Mike Dunleavy will not be recalled and President Donald Trump will not be removed from office by Congress.
Dunleavy appears to realize that his earlier approach to reducing the size of state government was a little too Godzilla-like for many Alaskans. Our state government organization was built when the price and Alaska production numbers on oil were both high and money was flooding into the state treasury.
The size and cost of our state government were unsustainable and Dunleavy came along at the right time. He knew tough decisions were necessary and he made them, though perhaps not with enough salesmanship to alleviate the pain for those most directly impacted, either in their jobs or in state services delivered.
