Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau Representative Andi Story will be monitoring the outcome of Monday's Legislative Budget and Audit committee hearing on the termination of Angela Rodell as CEO of the Alaska Permanent Fund.
Rodell claims her firing was “political retribution” by board members appointed by Gov. Mike Dunleavy.
The corporation’s board has provided no explanation for her Dec. 9 dismissal.
Representative Story weighed in while a guest on Action Line, she says she is glad the legislative budget and audit committee will hold a hearing Monday.
"They have asked for a Freedom of Information Act request on all the communication from about Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation board on this issue. I have no doubt that they will, you know, be asking tough questions and examining this issue and hopefully we'll have some recommendations on how to go forward, to avoid instances like this before, and to find out more about this current situation."
She was asked if there was anything she wanted to find out about the situation.
"I'm going to just find out what everyone else was going to find about the situation obviously, I believe Ms.Rodell has done an exceptional job for for Alaskans in raising $30 billion in revenue since her tenure, I'm going to be listening and watching and we'll see what recommendations come out of this hearing."
