Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Republicans in the Alaska House of Representatives have a new member from District 3, in the Interior.
Republicans in the House have confirmed Glenn M. Prax, one of the nominees sent by District 3 Republicans, to fill the seat vacated after the resignation of former Rep. Tammie Wilson.
“Through discussions with other elected Republicans in the House, Mr. Prax demonstrated to members that he is the right fit to represent his district,” said Rep. Lance Pruitt, leader of the House Republican Caucus, adding that Mr. Prax received enough votes to be confirmed.
“We look forward to welcoming Mr. Prax to the Alaska State House,” added Rep. Pruitt, “and working with him to contribute to constructive dialogue about Alaska’s fiscal future, public safety needs, and responsible government spending.”
Prax is the third legislator appointed by Gov. Mike Dunleavy.
