    Cora's a great lady. I've known her and her husband for quite a few years and her mom was one of my teachers in HS. She was raised in a commercial fishing family, seining, crabbing, longlining.... she's done it all, her dad's boat is named after her. She definitely understands the hunting and fishing community in Alaska. All in all I think she'll make some very good decisions.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    As a side thought, she's very ambitious and has climbed the ladder quickly. She's pretty darn young to be in a commissioner postion even acting. She's only like 32 or 33 years old. She's gotten there by being smart about her job and working very hard.

    As great as she sounds, I am a little suspect of anyone having an education degree in charge of a dept. this important. This is not to degrade the value of an education degree but I doubt having one would qualify you for very many supervisory positions in ADF&G, much less the commissioner. Then again, our previous governer only had a communications degree

    I highly doubt this will transfer into a fulltime position. She has been handling all the ADF&G, ADNR, and ADEC issues in the governors office for a number of years so I guarantee you she's up to speed.

    BTW, this is the job posting for Commissioner of ADF&G...no education requirement. Not saying that means Cora is qualified, but it was one thing I noticed.

    The way the commish is picked is that a joint board of BOG and BOF gives a list to the Gov. I doubt that Cora would make that list. I do know her and she is a great person but It is like saying Palin can handle the white house, LOL. Not gonna happen

    That's the way I see it. Cora's just filling the seat till BOF/BOG send the list to Parnell.
