Sealaska Endorses Peltola, Walker-Drygas and Murkowski; Opposes Constitutional Convention

The Sealaska Board of Directors approved endorsing Senator Lisa Murkowski, Mary Peltola for Congress and the Bill Walker-Heidi Drygas ticket for governor and lieutenant governor of Alaska. The board also opposes a constitutional convention, a ballot measure that appears on the general-election ballot in Alaska every 10 years.

Directors announced their endorsement of Peltola in July based on her long track record of working for and with Native communities across the state and because of her deep experience at all levels of government in Alaska.
