Governor Dunleavy Names Taylor Attorney General
Governor Mike Dunleavy announced Treg Taylor as Attorney General for the Alaska Department of Law and will submit his name for confirmation to the Alaska Legislature this session. Ed Sniffen has removed himself for consideration as Attorney General and will be leaving state service.
Taylor started with the Alaska Department of Law in 2018, serving as Deputy Attorney General in charge of the civil division. He holds a bachelor’s in political science and a law degree from Brigham Young University. He, his wife, and five of their six children live in Anchorage.
“I am honored and humbled that the Governor has asked me to serve as Alaska’s Attorney General. I have spent my entire legal career in Alaska, including the past two years as Alaska’s Deputy Attorney General,” said Attorney General Taylor. “I have a profound respect for the role of the Department of Law and for its dedicated employees. I hope that under my leadership the department will continue to provide outstanding legal service to the State, for the good of all Alaskans.”
