Thank you to all that took the time to email and POM the Alaska Legislature in support of our slate of Board of Fisheries appointees. The Legislature voted and all but Karl Johnstone were confirmed. A minute before the vote on Karl's confirmation, Representative Ivy Sponholtz, of Anchorage area, stood and said more than two anonymous women, who worked with the BOF during Johnstone's previous term on the board, accused him of inappropriate comments of a sexual nature thus creating a hostile work environment for them.
The CDA annual membership meeting will be on Tuesday, May 14, at 7pm in the Tanana Valley Sportsmens Association (TVSA) clubhouse (1230 TVSA Way) off Boat St., on the way to Compeaus. It's a fun time to hob nob with other dipnetters and hear the latest on our fishery from ADF&G and DOT representatives. If you're passionate about dipnetting, consider tossing your hat in the ring to become a board member! Nominations will be taken on the floor immediately followed by a vote. Door prizes will be drawn throughout the meeting. Food and drinks will be served at intermission.
