Former Alaska Board of Game member Richard Burley of Fairbanks was appointed by Governor Frank Murkowski again to the board after a 10 year absence, according to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. Burley is a retired printer, with a strong interest in Alaska hunting.
"I don't think it's going to mean much of a change," said Pat Valkenburg, Interior spokesman for the Alaska Outdoor Council, in the News-Miner article. "He's pro-hunting. He's pro-intensive management."
Burley replaces Alaska guide Sharon McLeod-Everette. Murkowski also reappointed Cliff Judkins of Wasilla for another term.
