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.

“Angoon now has no regularly scheduled barges to bring in supplies; neither do a half-dozen other villages that Alaska’s ferries serve, according to the Department of Transportation.
Dunleavy, a Republican, rode one of the state ferries from Washington to Ketchikan when he first arrived in the state, in 1983. And he was elected after saying there was “no plan to hack, cut or destroy” Alaska’s ferry system.”
Watch the trailer and then watch the full show tonight, it’s not every week that I get to appear on “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.” Or throw cheese at a TV host.
Governor’s budget will force closure of private dairy businesses in Alaska:
“Two were fired by the administration of Gov. Michael Dunleavy after they refused to submit required letters of resignation.”
“This isn’t a short-term shift: Department of Revenue projections indicate the Permanent Fund’s investments will out-earn all other taxes and royalties each year through 2028, the end of the forecast period.”
