The 2014 general election in Alaska was a historical one.
A unity ticket, representing independent candidates, has been elected to lead Alaska. Sealaska congratulates Bill Walker and Byron Mallott, Alaska’s new governor and lieutenant governor.
As a result, a Native voice will be at the top level of government and inspiring our children to lead as well. Mallott began his campaign as a candidate for governor of Alaska. He was the Democratic nominee after the August primary. On September 1, 2014, Mallott announced that he would join Walker to create a unity ticket.
