Congressman Don Young will have his annual Taste of Alaska fundraising party on Aug. 4, but at a new venue: The home of Stephen Routh, and with over 100 co-hosts. Notably, Gov. Mike Dunleavy and Sen. Dan Sullivan and Julie Fate Sullivan are the special guests.
Young has been representing Alaska in Congress since 1973 and this spring announced he would run for his 26th term. Rep. John Dingell, Jr., of Michigan, who retired in 2015, holds the record for longest consecutive serving congressman, with 59 years of service.
