Juneau – Members of the Alaska State Legislature who represent the Anchorage area are excited to announce the 2019 Anchorage Caucus. Unlike years past, the Anchorage Caucus will be split between two weekends. The first Anchorage Caucus event will be Saturday, February 23, at the Anchorage School District Education Center. The second Anchorage Caucus event will be held Saturday, March 2nd at the East Anchorage High School.
After the longest stalemate in state history, we voted to elect Representative Bryce Edgmon as Speaker, with a shared leadership team and caucus membership that includes Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. I was honored to cast a vote in support of Speaker Edgmon, and am looking forward to fulfilling our job of developing and passing a state budget. As one of my colleagues said in supporting Speaker Edgmon, “To hell with politics—let’s do what’s right for Alaska.”
