Roughly 60 people showed up to a town hall meeting with Sen. Gary Stevens at the Islands and Ocean Visitor Center early Friday afternoon to discuss the state budget. Stevens clearly told his constituents he does not support the deep budget cuts that Gov. Mike Dunleavy is proposing.

Stevens said slashing services to pay for a $3,000 dividend is unacceptable and he vowed that the Legislature wouldn’t accept the governor’s proposed spending plan.
