JUNEAU — When you’re governor, you get swag — gifts that are protocol from other government officials or pleasantries from people you meet as part of your travels or duties.
Since taking office, Alaska Gov. Bill Walker has reported receiving everything from calendars, pins and booze to sea otter mittens from the Yakutat Tlingit Tribes, duck calls from the president of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and a silver-plated framed photograph of Norway’s king, from King Harald V himself.
The gifts were reported in Walker’s ethics disclosure forms.
