Unalaska needs to be ready to fight for state funding in fiscal year 2021.
City lobbyist Dianne Blumer delivered that message Tuesday to the City Council.
She said she expects Gov. Mike Dunleavy to continue pushing for steep budget cuts to education, health care, and other state services that are critical to the community.
"It's not a promising picture," said Blumer. "I hate to be the gloom and doom here, but I anticipate the cuts that didn't happen this year are going to be taken up again for next session."
