For Alaska's Future
A retired lieutenant colonel, Margaret Stock is standing for Alaskans on the issues.
She has served her country in the U.S. Army Military Police Corps for 28 years. She is a graduate of the Harvard Law School, the Kennedy School of Government, and the Army War College. The oath she took to protect the Constitution and the nation is the oath she lives by today.
Margaret isn't a politician, and she doesn't represent a party. She is a retired soldier and a 2013 MacArthur Fellowship winner.
She lives in Anchorage with her husband Neil; her daughter Catherine is away at college. In her spare time, she loves to hike and ski in Alaska's mountains and relax at her wilderness cabin.

In Alaska, it’s “schedule” that apparently causes confusion . . .
“Besides the cuts to Medicaid, the budget finds $274 billion in savings over 10 years from spending cuts to anti-poverty programs. These would include $193 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), $21 billion from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and $40 billion from cuts to the earned income tax credit and child tax credit.”
