Rep. Kito’s Newsletter: 28th Legislative Session Ends

Just during the second half of this legislature we worked on an LNG export project, a massive education reform package, an overhaul of the criminal system and found various ways to streamline our state government. I worked tirelessly to ensure Fairbanksans’ needs were heard in Juneau.
