CWN hosted the UAA Seawolf Debate Team last week and they did a fantastic job! The team debated whether the State should utilize Permanent Fund earnings or tax individuals to close Alaska’s budget gap. Audience members cheered as each side presented or refuted the best arguments.
Video of the event is now online here:
Commonwealth north has long been an advocate of debate and public dialogue to address the vital public policy issues facing our state. Hosting the UAA Seawolf Debate Team each year is one way we spark public dialogue and also showcase some of Alaska’s future leaders.
