What is AK Headlamp?
Winter is coming.
Dark, cold, fog…
Alaskans know how essential a good headlamp is — at home, at play, at work – providing a clear view and a path forward.
Our economy and our state are facing real challenges. Like we haven’t seen in a long time.
Global oil prices have collapsed and our state budget is reeling. The volume of oil in the Pipeline is not what it used to be. Many of the megaprojects on the horizon that would fuel our economy are now facing serious challenges or have folded; we all know the ones: off-shore drilling, mining, LNG — the kind of projects that would have Alaskans working rather than bickering over how to spend what we have saved.
What should Alaska do?
There is a lot of noise out there. And very few Alaskans have time to read and sort through it all.
That is why we have launched this platform: AK Headlamp.
It’s for those of you who don’t have time to follow every step of what’s happening in Anchorage, in Juneau, or in Washington, D.C., Houston, London, Tokyo, or Moscow. You are focused on your jobs, your companies, your families.
It’s our future that is at stake. Alaska politicians come and go, but we are here to stay. We compete globally, what happens globally affects us here. We want to be looking forward, not back.
AK Headlamp will help.
Every day we will focus on three things. We will help you:
- Sort through what is happening in our state government, in the boardrooms of Alaska and around the globe.
- Identify who is making the decisions that help and who is hurting your future.
- Figure out what you can do. For your family, your mortgage, your job, and your future.
We plan to be your AK Headlamp. To show you what’s before you and provide a clear path forward.
AK Headlamp is a project of the Alaska Support Industry Alliance.
