Committee Chair:
Robert Nick, Nunapitchuk, AK

It’s an honor to continue representing the people of the Y-K Delta in the State House. During these difficult times for the state of Alaska, I am working hard to ensure the needs of rural Alaska, and our area in particular, are respected in the Legislature. To my constituents back home I pledge to fight on their behalf in Juneau to see that the Y-K Delta is not forgotten or treated unfairly. I continue working on State policy and budgets designed to reduce energy costs, replace and maintain infrastructure, and protect Power Cost Equalization and other programs that are so important to rural Alaska. I look forward to continuing to address the many needs of our area.
