Alaska Lieutenant Governor Resigns
Alaska Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott resigned October 16 after making comments that were called “inappropriate” by Gov. Bill Walker.
His replacement is Valerie Nurr’araaluk Davidson, who was once a commissioner for the Department of Health and Social Services.
According to Gov. Walker, it is too late to remove Mallott’s name from the ballot, but Mallott will not accept the position of lieutenant governor if he is elected next month.
