Parnell Names McConnochie to Redistricting Board
February 23, 2011, Juneau, Alaska - Governor Parnell today named PeggyAnn McConnochie to the Redistricting Board. The Redistricting Board is tasked with the reapportionment of election districts immediately following the official reporting of each decennial census of the United States.
"PeggyAnn's character and dedication to Alaska will be strong assets to the Redistricting Board," said Governor Parnell. "Her role on the Redistricting Board will add to her long list of dedicated service within her community."
McConnochie and her husband, John, have lived in Juneau since 1980, where she is broker and owner of ACH Consulting, a real estate company she has owned since 1996. In addition to her work as a broker and consultant, McConnochie has served in a number of leadership roles with the National Association of Realtors. She also served as director of the Alaska Association of Realtors, and was recognized with its Realtor of the Year award in 1992.
McConnochie has a long record of service in the Juneau community, and was named the 2003 Citizen of the Year by the Juneau Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, she has served in the Juneau-Gastineau Rotary Club, Commonwealth North, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and the University of Alaska Southeast Campus Council. A 1978 graduate of Whitman College, McConnochie holds a bachelor's degree in history and American Studies.
McConnochie replaces Al Clough, who was appointed by Governor Parnell to represent the First Judicial District. Clough resigned in order to begin state employment, as the Alaska Constitution prohibits members of the Redistricting Board from serving as public employees during their tenure on the board.
