Parnell plans interviews for Kerttula replacement

Feb 19, 2014 -- 11:30am
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Gov. Sean Parnell will interview the candidates for the House seat vacated by Beth Kerttula on Thursday. The Tongass Democrats earlier this month sent Parnell a list of three candidates: Jesse Kiehl, Catherine Reardon and Sam Kito III. Kerttula resigned as House Democratic leader on Jan. 21 and from the Legislature three days later to take a fellowship at Stanford University. Parnell spokeswoman Sharon Leighow did not say when Parnell would announce his choice except that he planned to make the appointment within the 30-day window set out in law. Sunday marks 30 days since Kerttula resigned. Parnell's choice will be subject to ratification by House Democrats.
