ANCHORAGE, Alaska The names of three candidates were sent Monday night to Gov. Mike Dunleavy as nominees to fill a vacancy in House Dist. 25.
The seat is open because of the selection of former state representative Josh Revak to serve in the Alaska Senate after the death of Senator Chris Birch.
Alaska Republican Party Dist 25 members met Monday night, and selected the three nominees, according to state party chair Glenn Clary:
Bias Melvin Gillis
Clary says the governor has 30 days from the time the seat became vacant to select one of the nominees. Republican members of the Alaska House of Representatives will then vote on whether to accept or reject the governor's selection.
Revak was confirmed by Senate Republicans on November 2.
