Rep. Guttenberg’s Newsletter: Peonies, Baseball and Marijuana Control Board

Rep. Guttenberg's Legislative Report Last month the Anchorage Bucs traveled to Fairbanks to take on the Goldpanners and I was honored to be asked to throw out the first pitch of the game. After an amazing pitch that flew right into the catcher’s glove, I was all but asked to be on the team. I was also delighted to accept an invitation to attend the opening ceremonies of the World Eskimo Indian Olympics, where I was able to be part of such a unique and important event that celebrates Alaskan Native diversity, heritage and culture

Rep. Tarr’s Newsletter: Erin’s Law Signed into Law!

Tarr's Times Last week something wonderful happened. After a long (2 years!), arduous journey that at times seemed doomed to fail, Governor Walker signed Erin’s Law on July 9th. It was absolutely one of the high points of my time serving as your Legislator, and I want to thank everyone again for standing with me in fighting to get this important law passed. The bill signing was held at the 125th anniversary of Alaska Youth and Family (formerly Alaska Children’s Services) and I can’t think of a more appropriate place. Alaska Youth and Family is a non-profit organization that provides services and runs a home for children who have experienced abuse. They do amazing work and if you don’t know about them I hope you’ll visit their website to learn more.
