Rep. Mary Peltola’s mom passes

Rep. Mary Peltola’s mother died on Friday, she announced on Twitter Monday.

“Buzzy and I spent Mother’s Day with our kids celebrating my mom who passed away on Friday. We want to thank everyone for the kind messages we received, and the love from our friends and families,” she wrote. Her office provided no additional details.

    • …….not a damn thing, except the media plays it up because she’s a Native. My mom is far more important to me than Mary Peltola’s mom. I could care less. In fact, this is more of a testament to how RCV gave us an inferior product to which we all must suffer.

    • Currently she was the only mom of our elected representative. News? Probably not, but items like this have been reported historically.

      This, in theory, could impact her doing her job, which in turn could impact Alaska.

  1. Her father, Ward Sattler, was an interesting person. Maybe he’s still alive. Mary might have been an honest person if she had spent more time with him.

  2. Though I disagree with everything she stands for, I cannot fathom what it’s like to loose your mother.

    My own mom has about maybe another 20+ years left on this planet, but that doesn’t make the thought any less distressful.

  3. Are Jill and Deb going to be at graveside services while Bethel pot dealers light up the pipes to honor the fallen?
