Missing out on our current rising national economy, Alaska is at a crossroad. Our state ranks both first and last in the wrong things, and we can’t just sit back any longer and ignore the obvious. We need to change the way we do business. Dealing with the same problems year in and year out doesn't work anymore. New hands on the rudder are needed, if we are to change our course with new approaches and fresh ideas.
Whether the issue is fighting for the Alaska Marine Highway; stopping the job loss; insuring Fish and Game has the necessary tools it needs; utilizing our state resources smartly for the benefit of our citizens; restoring the Permanent Fund; targeting the achievement gap in our educational system; achieving security for our citizens, especially in our rural areas; supporting issues special to the Native community; and really, really balancing the budget…the solutions are there! Of note, being the only trained physician/surgeon in the State House, my contribution to healthcare policy will be unique and powerful, especially since healthcare costs are beginning to overwhelm our resources.
Dr. Richard Wein
I’m not just any candidate running for the Alaska’s State House. Throughout my career, I have been an effective, thoughtful leader not only as a physician/surgeon, but also to my community as a citizen advocate and Assemblyman for Sitka. My life has revolved around problem solving and working with people—taking complex information, synthesizing it, and crafting workable solutions for everyone.
New hands on the rudder are needed.

Throughout my career, I have been an effective, thoughtful leader—as a physician/surgeon serving my community and greater SE Alaska—as an Assemblyman for Sitka—and as an advocate and resource to all.
My life has been dedicated to solving complex problems. Jobs, healthcare, infrastructure, and crime can be tackled. I will do my homework and be a tireless voice.
