Ketchikan: Governor Selects Sitka's Bert Stedman to Fill District A Senate Seat - Governor Frank Murkowski was in Ketchikan Saturday and spent almost an hour with District Republicans in Ketchikan talking about the Senate seat vacancy associated with the resignation of Sen. Robin Taylor of Wrangell before holding a news conference. He said he also met with District Republicans in Sitka Saturday morning prior to coming to Ketchikan.

Last Thursday the Governor announced that he had decided not to move forward with his nomination of Ketchikan resident Jim Elkins to fill the State Senate District A seat, vacated by Robin Taylor. Murkowski said last Thursday that he would be asking Republican District 1 and District 2 committees for any additional names they would like to submit; otherwise, he would pick a nominee from the original list.

In Saturday's news conference Murkowski announced his selection for the Senate seat. The Governor said, "We made a selection from the list that was selected by the combined Districts 1 and 2 and that gentleman's name is Mr. Bert Stedman who resides in Sitka." - Read more...
