"Alaskans voted for change," said Palin. "Not just at the top level, but throughout government. Mr. Clark is on record opposing any pipeline proposals outside of the one he helped craft. That's a bias the ANGDA board doesn't need."
Lorrie Hovanec will replace Richard Schok, Jr. of Fairbanks. Hovanec is an Anchorage attorney who currently serves as Trust Officer and Vice President of the Wells Fargo Alaska Trust Company. She has extensive experience in land use issues and has an over-arching knowledge of tribal consultation requirements in relation to pipeline permitting. Hovanec also has a thorough understanding of Native land ownership and the history of ANCSA and ANILCA.
"Lorrie's perspective and professional experience will be an excellent addition to the ANGDA board," said Palin. "She has an eye for detail and a talent for working through complex issues quickly. I look forward to her contribution to Alaska."
The mission of the Alaska Natural
Gas Development Authority is to develop, construct, manage, and
operate a gas pipeline from the North Slope of Alaska and a spur
line to the Southcentral Alaska natural gas distribution grid.
Per statute, the goal of the authority is to have the Alaskan
gas line in full production by 2007. ANGDA board members serve
three-year terms and may be reappointed.
