I will have to disagree with Rep. Hawker that he is the smartest guy in the room, and that he knows "best." Reminder, he is the man who is responsible for the Anchorage $44M Legislative Information Office fiasco. Not exactly Rep. Hawker's "best" work.
Today, House members voted "yes" on appointing out-of-state residents to Alaska's boards and commissions. This "yes" vote makes room for a retired ExxonMobil executive to occupy a seat on the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation's (AGDC) board.
I guess, Alaskans are not good enough for the AGDC board. ExxonMobil trumped Alaskans today.

Below is a clip of Rep. Mike Hawker's arrogant words on the House floor this afternoon. His arrogance was witnessed by children in the gallery.
