2019-2024 Representative DistrictSummary:
Hi, I'm Laddie Shaw. I've lived in Alaska for the last 37 years - and I've spent most of it outdoors, enjoying all Alaska has to offer. In the Navy SEALs, they teach how to work as a team and how to achieve objectives. That's what I will bring to Juneau. - Married 27 years - 24 years in uniform, US Navy SEAL - Two tours of service in Vietnam - 20 years state experience improving public safety and helping our veterans - A lifetime of standing up for our values Here's what I stand for: - Safe, crime-free neighborhoods. We all need to feel safe in our homes, neighborhoods, and places of business -- and that's my highest priority. As a State Trooper Academy instructor, I have the experience to make sure criminals are put in jail and kept there. That's why I support repealing SB 91 and taking a fresh look at our criminal justice laws. - A strong Alaskan economy. Alaskans deserve a strong, growing economy. I will work hard to make that a reality for all Alaskans. - Smaller, sustainable government. Government should live within its means before taking money out of the pockets of hard-working Alaskans. - Keeping our promises to Alaska's veterans and seniors. As a former State Director for Veterans Affairs, I believe that all veterans and seniors should receive the benefits and care promised to them.
