Jones will be replacing Barbara Gruenstein, who retires on June 30.

Ernie Hall, Chair, Anchorage Assembly
In the interest of full disclosure, let me say that I know Barb Jones because she serves on the Healing Racism in Anchorage steering committee on which I also serve.  From working with her there, I've seen her to be both technically competent and personally dedicated to serving the public well and fairly.
