Inaugural celebration co-chairs Cynthia Henry and Rina Salazar are working on details, but Alaskans can expect a combination of traditional, formal events, and less formal, family-centered ones.

“Mike Dunleavy is more Carhartt than tuxedo,” said co-chair Cynthia Henry. “These community celebrations will reflect that unique feature of our governor-elect.”
