Kenai attorney to represent Public Offices Commission

A Kenai attorney has been appointed to serve at the Alaska Public Offices Commission.

On Thursday, Gov. Sean Parnell appointed Carol Brenckle to serve the APOC, which administers laws upholding the public’s right to know the financial affairs of lobbyists and their employers, and of candidates and public officials at the state and municipal level, according to a press release.

Brenckle was appointed as a representative of the Republican Party. Alaska Statutes reserve two members for each of the two political parties whose candidate for governor received the highest number of votes at the preceding general election in which the governor was elected, according to the release.

Brenckle is a private practice attorney and has worked as a public defender and as a law clerk with the Alaska Court of Appeals. Brenckle is a member of the Kenai Chamber of Commerce, Kenai Library Commission, Kenai Peninsula Youth Court, and Bishop’s Attic of the Kenai Peninsula.
