Three state legislators from the Mat-Su are hosting a listening session to gather concerns from constituents ahead of next year’s legislative session.

From left Mat-Su legislators Rep. Cathy Tilton, Sen. Shelley Hughes and Rep. Delena Johnson are hosting a listening session on Nov. 27, starting 9:30 a.m., in Palmer.

Senator Shelley Hughes will be joined by Representatives DeLena Johnson and Cathy Tilton for the Nov. 27 event at American Legion Post in Palmer (1550 S. Mystic Circle). It begins at 9:30 a.m.

Hughes said the event is an appropriate forum to bring up “concerns and impacts of Covid, the federal mandates, etc. (whether in our families, our schools, our work).”

“Our jurisdiction is at the state level but due to the 10th amendment (powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people), it is important for us hear from you, tease out more precisely the impacts, and determine what we can address,” she noted.

The Mat-Su listening session will come on the heals of similar Anchorage event that was held Nov. 22 in which six other lawmakers asked Alaskans to publicly share how Covid mandates impacted their work, medical care, schools and more.

    Key statement – “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution” The federal government was never delegated the power to mandate anything.

  • Roz says:

    Why would these globalists let a bio-weapon out that could hurt their family when all they had to do was leak a lab story and leaked the fact that there was a patent for this bio weapon, which would just scare us enough to take the real bioweapon vaccine when there was no virus to start with. We are the stupidest generation that has ever walked on the Earth

    • Rhonda Pepin says:

      You got that right ! It was created in a lab to steal an election and get people to take an unsafe and possibly fatal vaccine. This is a repeat of the Nuremberg Trials. I hope all involved in this massive genocide pay the price for treason. I did get a bad case of covid, however the Ivermectin, Hydroxyqualaquine, Azithromycin as well as the supplements and aspirin a day, staying hydrated (pedialyte)got me better and saved me from ending up dead at Providence Hospital that will deny you Ivermectin because its not approved by the CDC (That communist globalist organization, like the NIH, FDA and Big pharma) Fauci is a war criminal and many others…need to be indicted on their crimes against humanity. Justice will come, whether its here on earth or later. God always wins People shouldn’t let these morons take/steal their power to satisfy their sociopathic ego’s for money, power and control. They are nothing because without integrity they are nothing but big zero’s

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Alaskans to publicly share how Covid mandates have impacted their work, medical care, schools and more.

    It has created classes of people, ok your in this box.
    Wait you don’t want us to control you like the other sheep, ok your in this group.
    It’s just Stupid Madness

  • John J Otness says:

    Until they stand up against the Foreign interference of the CCP owned Dominion these three are only Prospective indictments on John Durhams
    list of those sworn to Protect and defend the Constitution. There is no running as failure to act is Treason when a foreign Nation is in a direct Coup of our elections. 2018 President Trump in complete anticipation of said interference instituted this Foreign Interference Act. Betrayers of. oath know what is coming as the Indictments of Hillarys Lawyer was issued… Our Meek senators will soon see that the Constitution has deadly serious implications for Treason….

    What TIME does this start?

  • Anon Y. Mous says:

    Haha! Reading the political winds and playing it safe appears to be a trend with these! Stand proud, Sen. Reinbold, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

  • Leigh says:

    Why are we forced to have a debate in America on wether someone else can force you to be injected with chemicals?! This should be basic individual liberty rights. If a person can’t control this, we have zero control of anything. Our representatives should know how to proceed on something like this without any input. Their number one responsibility is to uphold individual rights. This is not up for debate. Other things can be debated, but not something like this.

  • Michael Alexander says:

    They need a new project to continue their failure streak. Balanced budget—fail. Full PFD—fail. Election integrity — fail. Coming soon, Ban Vax mandate—fail.
