An engaged Alaskan democracy


We worked with the Select Committee on Legislative Ethics to bring to Juneau, Michael Josephson, the consultant who guided the legislature on the first ethics bill, and Butch Speers of the National Conferences of State Legislatures. They gave a presentation at the Alaska Common Ground forum in Juneau and also held a workshop for the legislators. We had great assistance from the Juneau League of Women Voters who joined Alaska Common Ground as a co-sponsor. A second Ethics Forum was then held in Anchorage with Butch Speer, members of the Select Committee, and Brooks Miles, Executive Director of the Alaska Public Offices Commission, and Joyce Anderson, staff person for the Select Committee.
