After interview flap, Maw in, Johnstone out on Board of Fisheries

Roland Maw, executive director of the United Cook Inlet Drift Association, has taken one step back and two steps forward since his failed application for Alaska commissioner of Fish and Game, and now joins the very people who denied him an interview for the job. Gov. Bill Walker named Maw to the Alaska Board of Fisheries on Jan 20, replacing Chairman Karl Johnstone, who resigned following public and gubernatorial scrutiny of the board’s actions at the commissioner nominee selection meeting on Jan. 14. Maw’s place on the board will be effective Jan. 28 following a Jan. 21-27 board meeting in Wrangell.
