Anchorage Mayor frustrated with state lawyers, turns to federal attorneys

Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich says his increasing frustration with the crime enforcement division of the state law department has caused him to forge a stronger working relationship with the federal U.S. Attorney’s office. The head of the state’s law department says the municipality’s perceptions of the state DA’s Anchorage office are just that — perceptions — and not reality.
