    Glenn Hackney served in the Alaska House from 1973 to 1976 and in the Alaska Senate from 1977 to 1980.

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) - Governor Mike Dunleavy and First Lady Rose Dunleavy have sent condolences to the family and loved ones of former Alaska legislator Glenn Hackney, who passed away last week.

    Hackney moved to the Territory of Alaska in 1948 and served in the Alaska House from 1973 to 1976 and in the Alaska Senate from 1977 to 1980. He was known for his dedication to the Fairbanks Community Food Bank and his annual participation in Fairbanks’ Spring Cleanup Day.

    “My family sends our thoughts and prayers to the family of former legislator Glenn Hackney,” said Governor Dunleavy. “Glenn was a beloved Alaskan, and he touched the lives of many of us. Everyone will remember him for his dedication to community service and his various forms of leadership.”

    Governor Dunleavy has ordered that Alaska and United States flags fly at half-staff between sunrise and sunset on May 25, 2022, in honor of Hackney.
