Battle for the House: Lt. Gov. Nancy Dahlstrom

In our latest episode of STAND, Alaska’s Lieutenant Governor Nancy Dahlstrom shares her motivation and inspiration for becoming a candidate for the U.S. House. Dahlstrom’s diverse career path through private industry, utilities, retail, anti-human trafficking, and public service paints a picture of a dedicated leader committed to the well-being of Alaskans. 

Dahlstrom’s involvement in public service began when she joined the Alaska legislature, where she eventually became the Rules Chair, a critical position that shapes legislative agendas. Her leadership capabilities were further demonstrated when she served as the Commissioner of the Department of Corrections, a role she took on in 2018 due to her commitment to public safety.

One of the most compelling segments of the episode examines Dahlstrom’s first hand experience at the U.S.-Mexico border. She provides an eye-opening analysis of the border crisis, informed by her observations of the challenges faced by Border Patrol agents and the impact of different administrations’ policies. Dahlstrom’s detailed account of the dire conditions at the border highlights the urgent need for effective immigration policies. 

The episode also addresses the implications of Mary Peltola’s voting record, which includes controversial decisions affecting Alaska’s representation in Congress. Dahlstrom criticizes Peltola’s support for including illegal immigrants in the census, a decision that could increase representation for states with sanctuary policies and dilute Alaska’s influence in Congress. Dahlstrom also emphasizes the inconsistencies in Peltola’s stance on resource development in Alaska, pointing out her tendency to avoid making definitive votes on crucial issues. This discussion highlights the disappointment and confusion among Alaskans regarding Peltola’s changing positions and her lack of firm support for Alaska’s resource development.

Dahlstrom’s campaign is centered around pushing back against federal overreach and protecting Alaska’s resources. She articulates her concerns about the current administration’s policies and their impact on Alaska, particularly in terms of resource development and economic growth. Dahlstrom’s vision for Alaska includes unleashing the state’s resources to boost the economy and improve the quality of life for Alaskans. The discussion about her campaign is one you won’t want to miss!
