Dear Friends and Neighbors,
And we’re off!
The 29th Legislature gaveled in yesterday to much fanfare. I was proud to sign my oath of office to represent Senate district Q for the next four years. The district includes Haines, Skagway, Gustavus and Juneau.

I’ll again be serving on the Senate Transportation Committee, and also have a seat on the Select Committee on Legislative Ethics, the Community & Regional Affairs Committee, and the In-State Energy Committee. We’ll all be preoccupied by the budget, but a lot of the major issues facing Alaskans aren’t about how much the state spends. I’ll also be working on these committees to do a better job moving people and commerce, strengthen our cities and villages, and help Alaskans who still struggle with the price of energy.
You’ll find us in a different office. We have a cozy space on the 4th floor of the Capitol, on the odd-numbered/Main Street side of the building, in room 417. There you’ll find my hard-working staff. Returning this year are Jesse Kiehl & Alida Bus. We also welcome UAS legislative intern Heather Haven Evoy. Heather – a senior majoring in environmental science and anthropology – is from Ketchikan originally. We’re glad to have her on board.
