Welcome to Juneau Update
Good morning from rainy Juneau! We hope you and your family had a wonderful New Year and safe holiday season. Our office has officially settled into the Capitol city and today marks the start of 2nd Regular Session of the 30th Alaska Legislature.
This year, our office is looking forward to digging into our state’s budget for the coming year, and finding ways to streamline state services and operate more efficiently. Additional priorities include increasing tools for those providing public safety services, supporting growth in our private sector, and helping our economy rebound from the state’s recession. We are optimistic that with our bond rating increasing, rising oil prices and increasing development and exploration, Alaska will come back stronger than ever after this period of economic struggle. We will keep you posted as these issues are discussed during this session.
Here’s a quick reminder of the team working in the Millett Office:
Grace, our Chief of Staff
Hans, our Policy Aide
Sarrah, our Office Manager
All three are returning staff, and are here to serve you!
As the legislative session gets underway, we want to ensure you have the right resources to stay in touch with us. Our session contact is as follows:
