ICYMI: KTUU Story on Mercer Case Press Conference

ANCHORAGE — Yesterday, Alaskans spoke out against Dan Sullivan’s claims of victory in “personally negotiating” the Mercer settlement, which left billions of dollars on the table and put the Permanent Fund at risk.

Leaders from the Alaska State Employees Association (ASEA), National Education Association-Alaska (NEA-Alaska), the Alaska Professional Fire Fighters Association (AKPFFA), and Alaska Public Employees Association (APEA), who combined represent tens of thousands of Alaska workers, stood up to Dan Sullivan’s recent television ad.

The Alaska Dispatch News published a claim check this week also addressing Dan Sullivan’s untrue statements.

Sullivan’s settlement shortchanged Alaskans for only $.20 on the dollar. A similar lawsuit from the County of Milwaukee obtained $.45 on the dollar.
