Gov. Dunleavy makes education reform his top goal in interview

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) - Shortly after he was elected, Gov. Mike Dunleavy spoke with an Anchorage TV station about his coming administration's goals.

    According to a story on KTVA's website, in addition to fighting crime, restoring the Permanent Fund Dividend and cutting the budget, Dunleavy said education reform is at the top of his "to-do" list.

    One of the Republican governor's first stops after taking the oath of office in Kotzebue was his wife's hometown of Noorvik. While he was there he vowed to remember his roots in rural Alaska as a teacher and administrator in the Northwest Arctic.

    "I just want to let you know as your governor, moving forward, you will never be forgotten," Dunleavy said. "Whether it has to do with the educational system, you won't be forgotten. whether it has to do with crime, things like sexual assault, you are not going to be forgotten."
