JUNEAU — A state official says a controversial Board of Fisheries appointee has indicated he no longer wants to be considered for a seat on the board.
Karen Gillis, director of boards and commissions, said she was told Friday to prepare a letter to the Legislature, informing lawmakers Roland Maw was withdrawing his name from consideration. Maw didn’t immediately return a call to The Associated Press seeking confirmation.
Katie Marquette, a spokeswoman for the governor, said Maw gave a letter to chief of staff Jim Whitaker on Friday.
