As Alaskans await the final results of the 2014 election, and the analysis to follow, AFN is looking ahead to what President Julie Kitka said in an October 31 press conference was “unfinished business.”

“The work on national legislation will continue,” Kitka said. “Our partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice will evolve and, hopefully, result in permanent and just action. We will continue our work in Juneau, with the new legislature and the new governor, whoever wins the election.”
