Today the House District 16 Democrats and Alaska Democratic Party announced the process and timeline to fill the State House vacancy resulting from Representative Max Gruenbergâ€™s passing.
Do you think you know who will win the presidential primaries in Alaska, or any other state for that matter? Maybe you have the inside track to who will take either partyâ€™s nomination? The website PredictIt lets you turn that knowledge into cash.
Governor Bill Walker and Lt. Governor Byron Mallott today mourned the passing of Representative Max Gruenberg.
â€œThis is a significant loss for all of Alaska,â€ Governor Walker said. â€œMax has been a steady and respected voice in the legislature. Donna and I are covering his loved ones with prayer during this very difficult time.â€
Rep. Gruenberg is survived by his wife, Kayla Epstein, his sons and daughter-in-law.
Governor Walker ordered flags to be lowered concurrently for Rep. Gruenberg and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Here is the best, most entertaining, and on-point speech I’ve heard about the state of Alaska’s budget. The kicker is these words were spoken on May 2, 2002. It is amazing how history has repeated itself.
Donny Olson cuts his deal, unions pony up, and Begich files for office…..Its Friday in the Sun!!!!!
Former mayoral candidate Dustin Darden has filed to run for the West Anchorage Assembly seat. He joins a crowded field that currently includes former Assemblyman Adam Trombley, Ira! Perman, and former state legislator Eric Croft.
In todayâ€™s Senate Finance Committee press availability I asked if Sen. Donny Olson would see received additional staffers to move to the Senate Majority Caucus and if so if that staffing increase would be offset by corresponding reductions elsewhere in legislative staff.
Olsonâ€™s addition to the majority might say many things. The one thing I can definitively say is his addition does not say fiscal responsibility.
Last week, one group arrived with the name of their organization emblazoned on the side of a jet.
If the race dynamics remain as they are today, and I wouldnâ€™t bet the house on it, Weddleton receives all left of center support, Schimscheimer plays for the pro-business crowd, Taylor is the social conservative candidate, and Bunde casts herself as the fiscal conservative.
