Alaska Senators commend choice for U. S. Attorney in Alaska

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - President Trump's choice to serve as the United States Attorney for Alaska is drawing praise from the state's two senators.

    Bryan Schroder has been the acting head of the Alaska office.  Up to that point, he had served as the first assistant and criminal chief for the office since 2005.

    He's a retired Coast Guard captain and a graduate of the Coast Guard Academy and the University of Washington School of law.  Schroder served in the Coast Guard for 24 years.  He then served as a judge advocate in Juneau, Anchorage, Miami, New York and Colorado Springs.

    Senator Lisa Murkowski says Schroder is an outstanding lawyer and federal prosecutor.  "He is exceptionally well qualified and a great choice for U. S. Attorney," she says.

    Senator Dan Sullivan says Schroder is a talented attorney who is well prepared to handle the responsibilities of the position.  "I congratulated him on his nomination and on the many years he has already spent serving our country," he says.
