Alaska ACLU Head Leaving State For New Position

Alaska ACLU head Jeff Mittman is leaving the state for another post with the organization.

An ACLU press release does not disclose what his new job will be, but says that an interim Executive Director will serve while a national search goes on.

ACLU Alaska President Donna Goldsmith praised Mittman for raising the profile of the organization during his five years of service and expressed confidence that Joshua Decker would do a good job continuing to protect the constitutional rights of Alaskans.
