John Moller, who grew up in Unalaska and lived in the town until 1995, is the new rural advisor to the governor. Moller fished crab and cod for more than 10 years before managing a small fleet of fishing boats and the for-profit subsidiaries for the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Community Development Association. He also worked for 6 months as the vice president of development for Adak Fisheries in 2007 and 2008. He still owns and runs a small number of fishing boats. He says his experiences living and networking around parts of Western Alaska will help him in his new post.
