ANCHORAGE – On Friday, August 28, at 3:00 p.m. in the Anchorage Legislative Information Office (LIO), the Senate Resources Committee will hold a hearing to take public testimony on and consider Governor Mike Dunleavy’s appointees to the Board of Fisheries: John Jensen, McKenzie Mitchell, Abe Williams, and John Wood.

“Without knowing if a special session will occur prior to the 2021 legislative session, and considering the importance of the Board of Fish process to Alaskans, we felt it was important to review and provide the public an opportunity to weigh in about the specific appointees to the BoF,” said Senator Micciche, R-Soldotna, chairman of the Senate Resources Committee. “Friday’s meeting will provide that opportunity. Our hope is that fishing Alaskans will engage respectfully toward a robust discussion while the results of the 2020 fishing season are fresh on their minds.”
