Gov. Mike Dunleavy will hold the first of his “Conversations with Alaskans” town hall-style meetings from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, March 2 at Chugiak High.

The governor is holding a series of meetings to talk with constituents about the state’s fiscal situation.

“Join Governor Dunleavy for a discussion on Alaska’s fiscal realities and how we can put our state on a path to prosperity for generations to come,” reads a meeting description on the governor’s website.

Previous meetings in the series scheduled for Feb. 3-4 in Petersburg and Wrangell were cancelled due to bad weather.

In his January announcement about the town hall meetings, Dunleavy said he’s hoping to hear people’s opinions on the Permanent Fund Dividend, the necessity of state programs and services; how state spending outcomes should be measured; and which natural resource opportunities people support.

“I am looking forward to engaging with Alaskans from every corner of our state in the crucial decisions for Alaska’s future,” Dunleavy said in a statement.
