New Appointee For Board Of Fish



The Alaska Native News has soms details on new appointments for the Alska Board of Fish and Game:

Governor Bill Walker announced his most recent appointments to the Boards of Fish and Game today. Alan Cain, Israel Payton, and Robert Ruffner will join the Alaska Board of Fisheries, which sets regulations and policy related to the state’s fishery resources.

Mr. Cain will replace Robert Mumford of Anchorage who intends to resign from the board effective March 14, 2016, following conclusion of the board’s current meeting cycle.

“I am pleased to appoint Alan Cain, Israel Payton, and Robert Ruffner to the Alaska Board of Fisheries,” said Governor Walker. “Alaska’s fisheries are enjoyed by many in our state, and the experience these three men bring to the board will ensure this resource is managed for the maximum benefit of Alaskans. I also thank Robert Mumford and Fritz Johnson for serving on the Board of Fish. Mr. Johnson’s expertise has proven invaluable, and I hope to utilize him in a different capacity going forward.”

Also, disgraced former Board of Fish and Game appointee Roland Maw, who was charged 17 counts of fraud, has entered a not guilty plea.
