Democrats Ask About Fish-Game Job Relocating to Anchorage

Juneau lawmakers say they want a better explanation for relocating a high profile fish and game position to Anchorage. Sen. Dennis Egan and Rep. Beth Kertulla – both Democrats – have sent a letter to Commissioner Denby Lloyd asking why the wildlife conservation director has been relocated. Lloyd last week appointed Corey Rossi, who says he probably wouldn’t have taken the job if he had to move to the Capital City. Rossi has also drawn criticism for his close ties to big game hunting groups pushing for more predator control programs.
