[UPDATE 9:30pm : I learned from the Board's administrative assistant that there were six applicants, but only five completed the application process. All five will be interviewed. There is also some question about whether the meeting will be accessible remotely on the grounds that most of the meeting will be executive session.]
ALASKA REDISTRICTING BOARDBOARD MEETING AGENDAMarch 13th, 1:00PMAnchorage, Alaska
I suspect most of the meeting will be in Executive session and then they will announce the finalists who they will interview on Thursday. That agenda (Thursday) is the same except they're interviewing finalists in the Executive Session.1. CALL TO ORDER2. ROLL CALL3. APPROVAL OF AGENDA4. CHAIRMAN’S REPORT5. LEGAL REVIEW6. EXECUTIVE SESSION:
- REVIEW APPLICATIONS FOR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND
- LITIGATION STRATEGY AND ADVICE FROM COUNSEL7. BOARD MEMBER COMMENTS8. NEXT MEETING: MARCH 14TH 9:00AM9. ADJOURNMENT
If you go to the meeting tomorrow, I imagine some of the applicants may be there just to see how things work and to find out if they'll be interviewing on Thursday. Unfortunately, I'm in LA (but in terms of weather, fortunate.)
For those nearby in Anchorage, they'll be meeting at 411 W 4th Avenue, Suite 302
For others, you can watch it online. That's the Alaska Legislative tv link.
Their last executive director, Taylor Bickford, was a sharp, competent, and decent young man, who jumped into the job after the unexpected death of the original executive director, also a competent and able man, Ron Miller. I hope they can do as well this time.
