Jay Hammond must be rolling in his grave at the current shenanigans in Juneau.
In his first term as Senator, the young Jay Hammond sought a way to protect Education and Fish and Game commissioners from political cleansing by the then new Republican administration. Sen. Hammond devised and passed a clever way to balance the system: An appointed board for fish management, another appointed board for game management, and an appointed Board of Education.
The governor could not have more than four persons from his party on any of the boards.
