Governor chooses Tiffany Zulkosky to replace Fansler


Gov. Bill Walker appointed Tiffany Zulkosky of Bethel to represent District 38 in the Alaska House of Representatives. She replaces Zach Fansler, whose resignation took place on Feb. 12 after he was accused of slapping a woman. No charges have yet been filed.

Ms. Zulkosky, 34, is vice president of communications for the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation. Previously, she served as Bethel’s mayor, was a director for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Western Alaska, and worked as rural director for former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich.

“Tiffany is the best person for this job. I’m proud and humbled to forward someone with such a compelling background and strong voice to House Democrats for consideration,” Gov. Walker said. “If and when she is confirmed, the district will be represented well.”

The Democrats in the House will meet and vote on her confirmation in coming days.
