The Alaska Supreme Court says that the recall campaign against Gov. Mike Dunleavy has a legally valid basis and can appear on the ballot.
Separately, the Alaska Alaska Supreme Court this week received new arguments on an appeal that could block the recall.
Earlier this month, the Recall Dunleavy followed guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and suspended all signature gathering events.
The Supreme Court has directed the Alaska Division of Elections to prepare petition booklets immediately to the group Recall Dunleavy.
Anchorage Superior Court Judge Eric Aarseth has again issued a stay that halts Recall Dunleavy from gathering signatures to hold a recall election, pending a decision from the Alaska Supreme Court.
Anchorage Superior Court Judge Eric Aarseth issued a new order Wednesday morning, saying the previous one was “inadvertently issued” and revoked.
The Heritage Foundation billed Dunleavy as a fiscal hawk with lessons for Washington on how to balance the federal budget.
On stage at AFN, the president and CEO of Cook Inlet Region Inc. pointed to the governor’s “violation of separation of powers” and the impacts of state budget cuts as reasons the Alaska Native corporation supports the recall effort.
