Bethel folks - Board Members PeggyAnn McConnochie and Marie Greene will be at the Yup'itPiciryarait Culural Center in Bethel from 10am to 12 noon. Bethel is in District 38 in both of the Board's options. This district goes all the way from Kwigillingok through Bethel to Lime Village and Tyonek and Sleetmute on up to McGrath and then to Anderson, Ferry, Healy and Cantwell.

Glennallen folks - At the same time (10am - 12noon) Board member Jim Holm and board executive director Ron Miller will be at the Glennallen Legislative Information Office in Glennallen.
In the draft plan, you are in District 6, the largest district in the state (I believe in the USA).
It goes from Southwest Alaska (Holy Cross, Anvik) up north (Wiseman, Venetie) over and around Fairbanks (Nenana, Manley Hot Springs, Ester) and then down along the Canadian Border (Eagle) south to Chitina and McCarthy.)

Even if you don't understand any of this, if you have time, I encourage you to go to the meeting, look at the maps, and ask questions. When they aren't taking testimony, you can talk to them one-on-one.
