The Alaska Redistricting Board is planning to guarantee Southeast Alaska will no longer have three state Senate seats, but it also ensured the region won’t drop below two senators.
For the last 10 years, Southeast has had three of the 20 members of the Senate, but lately had a population that barely justified two.
Currently, those are Sens. Dennis Egan, D-Juneau, Bert Stedman, R-Sitka, and Albert Kookesh, D-Angoon.
