Former Rep. Lynn Gattis, who has served in the Mat-Su Office of the Governor, is returning to the Capitol Building in Juneau next week as an aide to Rep. Tammie Wilson of North Pole.
Wilson is co-chair of Finance, in charge of the capital budget, in the Democrat-led bipartisan majority.
Gattis served as a House member for District 7 (formerly District 9) from 2012 to 2017.
She served on the House Finance Committee and chaired the subcommittee on administration. She ran for the Senate Seat D post that was being vacated by Sen. Charlie Huggins in 2016, but lost in the primary to Sen. David Wilson. In 2018, she ran for lieutenant governor.
Earlier this year, Gattis took a temporary job with the Governor’s Office as his representative in the Mat-Su. She is a lifelong Alaskan who was raised in rural Alaska and had a career in aviation before becoming involved in politics.
