Rating Alaska's sitting legislators

After being pulled back to Juneau for one last three-day ride,  the Legislature has mostly, kinda sorta but not really wrapped up its work for the year where the pandemic sidelined/spared us of the fight over the big questions facing the Legislature. What's gonna happen to the budget? Who knows! What about the PFD? Who knows! How about taxes? Who knows! Will that alcohol tax rewrite ever be passed? Who knows! 

But we want to know what you guys think of all 60 legislators currently at the levers of the Legislature. 

We're putting together our third comprehensive ranking of Alaska's sitting legislators based and need your totally scientific, anonymous help. Below, we've got all 60 legislators and need you to rate them based on their intelligence, ethics and effectiveness. There's also some room, if you so choose, to suggest a nickname and the best will be included in the final results. Everything from your responses to your comments will remain anonymous throughout the process from the survey to the final post.

You can find last year's results here: The Good, the Bad and, wait, Who? The Midnight Sun’s 2019 rankings of Alaska’s legislators
