Kenai River Classic

August 2018 is shaping up to be a pretty good month for Eagle River’s Lora Reinbold.

On Aug. 21 she won the state Senate District G Republican primary beating fellow state Representative Dan Saddler with 59 percent of the vote.

Three days later on Aug. 24, she won the 2018 Kenai River Classic with a 16.2-pound chrome beauty. The KRC is an invitational event hosted by the Kenai River Sportfishing Association based in Soldotna aimed at educating high level government officials and business leaders regarding fisheries conservation.

Spoken as a true Alaskan would say, Reinbold would not reveal what she had on her hook for the big catch.

“The lure/bait is a secret,” she texted to The Eagle.

What she isn’t keeping quiet about is the continued focus for her campaign as she heads to the general election in November.

Reinbold renewed her call for the repeal of SB 91 – the state’s contentious crime bill for which the 2018 legislature began an overhaul.

She wants to continue audits of the budgets of each department of state government beginning with Health and Human Services.

She wants to completely rid the state of the Common Core education practice as well as federal over-regulation.

“Let teachers teach a great curriculum like Saxon Math not ‘Everyday Math’ or the Common Core goofy math,” Reinbold said.

She also wants the state’s judges to be assessed in regards to their performance relating to ensuring public safety.

Reinbold was one of several of the state’s leading politicos hosting a fundraising dinner for Mike Dunleavy, Republican gubernatorial candidate, Tuesday night at the Anchorage offices of Davis Constructors & Engineers.
