Pebble Mine Gets Special Treatment While Alaskans Suffer
Dan Sullivan has made a career putting big corporations above everyday Alaskans.
In response to the coronavirus, Dan did what he does best: he joined a letter asking for a massive government bail-out for giant oil and gas corporations. Big oil and gas companies are the most profitable businesses in all of human history, and not surprisingly, Dan’s taken more than $650,000 from the oil and gas industry to help him stay in his cushy U.S. Senate seat.
On the Pebble mine, Dan Sullivan has been mealy-mouthed and noncommittal for years about a project a strong majority of Alaskans want to see go away. Now, as the Army Corps continues work to get the Pebble EIS out this summer, Dan’s offering more lip service and no action.
As we Alaskans hunker-down and contend with the massive disruptions and stresses from the coronavirus, the Army Corps should be focused on taking care of critical infrastructure and ensuring the safety and welfare of all Alaskans.
Dan Sullivan needs to stop playing games, and take real action.
Take 5 minutes to ACT NOW to urge Senator Dan Sullivan to:
- Write a letter to the Lieutenant General Todd T. Semonite, the Commanding General of the Army Corps, urging him in the strongest possible terms to pause the permitting process for the Pebble mine until all state and federal emergency orders related to coronavirus are lifted;
- Hold a press conference to announce his position on the Pebble permitting process in the midst of the coronavirus chaos;
- Hold a video town hall with Alaskans specifically about the Pebble mine permitting process, with opportunity for meaningful questions and answers.
Dan Sullivan has spent his career in Washington, D.C. ignoring Alaskans. The time for action is now.
