Begich Opens Kenai, Ketchikan Offices
U.S. Sen. Mark Begich has opened two new offices in Alaska. Begich's Kenai office opens officially Oct. 13 with an open house from 4 - 6 p.m. That opening comes on the heels of the Ketchikan office, which officially opened at the end of last month.
"Our offices in Kenai and Ketchikan are another link in the chain of keeping in touch with Alaskans around this vast state," Begich said. "In addition to the main state office in Anchorage, I'm pleased to now have a presence on the Kenai Peninsula, as well as Ketchikan, Juneau and Fairbanks."
Begich has hired long-time Alaskan Kim Howard to run the Kenai Office at 805 Frontage Road, Suite 101. Howard moved to the Kenai Peninsula from Anchorage in 1977 and has extensive experience in local government. She worked for the City of Kenai as Assistant to the City Manager for 25 years, providing support to various city administrators on a wide range of management-related issues.
Sen. Begich's Ketchikan office opened at the end of September. The office is staffed by former Ketchikan mayor Bob Weinstein, the longest-serving mayor in Ketchikan's history. You can find Weinstein in the White Cliff Building at 1900 First Avenue, Suite 230, or call him at (907) 225-3000.
