Sad news today. Two former legislators and a current legislator were arrested on very serious federal charges. Prayers are in order for the families of these men and, yes, also for those arrested. Hopefully our justice system will work well, and justice will prevail.

Legislators, both individually and as a group, are unimportant. However the elected office held by legislators, and the legislature as a whole, is extremely important.

Trustworthiness is more important than experience, education, brainpower, political party, our personal finances, or positions on issues. Without a foundation of trust between legislative colleagues, and without a foundation of trust between legislators and the people who elect them, our American and Alaskan system of representative government suffers - and it suffered today.

It’s OK, it’s expected, that votes on issues may be questioned – honest people can arrive at different conclusions – but it’s never never OK if our votes aren’t trusted. Please keep us all in your prayers.
