More change at CFEC

Melvin Smith, chairman of the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission, has submitted his resignation citing "medical reasons."

The governor has appointed Glenn Haight to serve as the new chair of CFEC effective May 7, a spokesman for the governor's office said.

Haight only recently was named to the commission and is awaiting legislative confirmation.

Hmmm, the CFEC Executive Director also resigned at roughly the same time. Both resignations occurred after a hearing held in the AK Legislature's House Fisheries committee on April 21. For fish folks, the hearing is worth watching.
