Q. Who is your governor? -Charles
A. Our present governor is Republican Frank Hughes Murkowski, who was born March 28, 1933. He is the father of U. S. Senator Lisa Murkowski. Mr. Murkowski served in the U. S. Coast Guard.
Mr. Murkowski was elected to the U. S. Senate in 1980 and was re-elected in 1986, 1992, and 1998. The 1998 term was to end in January 2005, but he had to cut it short when he was elected our governor in 2002. For the most part, I think he has been a good governor, although some would disagree with me. But then, isn’t that always the way? If you need any other info just let me know. -Bonnie J.
