So, the new LIO “Taj Mahawker” in Anchorage is going to get $500,000 in new furniture. For this nice little spending spree, we can thank the members of the Legislative Council, which includes Speaker Chenault and Senator Micciche. Of course, this elite group had already authorized $100,000 for furniture design, so the new office furniture expenditure will be a measly $600,000. Wonder if they are getting gold inlay on the chairs? Oh, and they also approved the highest bid of $343,246 for the purchase of new audio/visual equipment for the grotesquely expensive downtown Anchorage office.
