Governor Mike Dunleavy, First Lady Rose Dunleavy, Lieutenant Governor Kevin Meyer and Marty Meyer are sending their deepest sympathies today to the family and friends of former Lieutenant Governor Byron Mallott. Mallott, 77 years old, passed away this morning in Anchorage. "The First Lady and myself want to extend our condolences to the Mallott family during this time of great personal loss," said Governor Dunleavy. "It didn't matter if it was in the native community, the business sector or public office -- Byron was a leader who worked to improve our state for the people of Alaska." "Marty and I offer our sincere condolences to the family of former Lieutenant Governor Byron Mallott in this time of mourning. Byron had a long history of service to our great state," said Lt. Governor Meyer. Governor Dunleavy has ordered the United States flag and Alaska state flag to be flown at half-staff for seven days starting today through sunset Friday, May 15.
An important role of Alaska's Lt. Governor is oversight of the state Division of Elections. As Lt. Governor, Kevin is committed to ensuring we have open and fair elections so that all Alaskans across the state can exercise their right to vote. Kevin will put a priority on ensuring the integrity of the voting process, so Alaskans can have full confidence in the outcome of elections. In addition, Kevin recognizes technological innovation is driving inevitable change in how we cast our ballots and will ensure the state moves in a prudent and thoughtful manner to implement changes while safeguarding the sanctity of the ballot.
The lack of a comprehensive solution to our fiscal issues is simply a function of the tough issues we face. The reality is there has been no "gridlock" in the State Senate. The Senate produced and passed a fiscal plan based on budget reductions, spending limits that limit the growth of government for the long term, and ensuring Alaskans receive a Permanent Fund Dividend. Kevin and his fellow Republican Senate colleagues held to conservative principles and stood firm against the Governor and the Democrats who fought to impose new taxes on Alaskans and failed to cut the budget. Electing a new Republican Governor and Lt. Governor is vital to enforcing fiscal discipline in the executive branch.
