This statement just arrived from Jim Marcotte, executive director of the Alaska Board of Fisheries:
Jeremiah Campbell has resigned his seat on the Alaska Board of Fisheries. Campbell concluded that the demands of his new employment responsibilities did not allow adequate time to properly serve on the board.
The board has over 29 meeting days scheduled between now and March and travel to four different communities. Campbell was first appointed to the board in September 2005 and was reappointed to a term expiring June 30, 2009.
The governor is expected to name a replacement prior to the upcoming Dec. 1-7 regulatory meeting in Cordova.
