Alaska Revenue Commissioner Lucinda Mahoney announced Thursday she will resign effective Friday, Sept. 9. Mahoney is leaving to refocus on her health and family. Must Read Alaska has learned that she has been facing health challenges.
“I want to acknowledge and celebrate Commissioner Mahoney’s many contributions to the people of Alaska,” said Gov. Mike Dunleavy, who will turn his focus on finding an acting Revenue commissioner. “Under her leadership, the state’s credit rating and overall fiscal health significantly improved. Oil tax credits have been paid off, the state’s public employee pension obligation has been significantly reduced, and school bond debt reimbursement is reinstated. She came into office just as the global pandemic was appearing in Alaska, and successfully managed the distribution of early PFD payments to assist Alaskans in 2020, and again this year for families struggling to make ends meet due to rampant inflation. The people of Alaska thank Commissioner Mahoney for her contributions to our great state.”
