Assembly Member Running for Lieutenant Governor

Posted: May 16, 2014 at 12:13 pm

Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly Member Kelly Wolf filed his letter of intent to campaign for Lt. Governor May 11.

 

Wolf said he considers the Lt. Governor position as an ambassador to Alaska’s people.

 

Wolf: “My past experience with youth restoration corp has allowed me to develop my skills, create partnerships, and work with our youth and I am very concerned about our kids today.” 

 

He said that current problems like domestic violence and suicide are among some of his concerns but also preparing youth for Alaska’s future.

 

Wolf: “Speaker Chenault could, with the governor, say we’re going to do it and start trying to build the pipeline tomorrow and we don’t have the skilled labor here in the state to even try. Its sad, we hear it all the time in the media and people talk about it in the streets that you need to hire Alaska hire but how do you find that skilled labor force?”

 

We asked him about previously withdrawing from the  House of Representatives race due to a conflict of interest.

 

Wolf: “At the time I had applied for a grant through state parks, nonprofit, I didn’t want to cause a problem and since the lieutenant governor’s position doesn’t have anything to do with voting on house or senate legislation there’s not a conflict. I’m an individual who really takes ethical or conflicts of interest to heart.”

    Don’t worry…he’ll back out of that race in a few weeks….just like he did in the last State House election.

  • Casey says:

    I hope he wins the race and we can get rid of him on KPB Assembly……………where he has been a pain in the a–! Especially on Kenai River Bank protection regs. He is totally opposed to protecting the river banks; as are many land owners along the river. They don’t care to educate themselves as to the importance of the river bank in the overall ecosystem health of the river and it’s fish. They are scared to death the government might do something to help the environment.

    Casey, if he’s no good on the assembly, what in the world would you be doing hoping he wins higher office? You think he’s going to be of any use to anyone if he’s lt. governor?

    Let’s just hope he is denied any elected office. Let’s hope he’s far away from any public policy decisions.

    Kelly Wolf can play both parts in a remake of the movie “Dumb and Dumber”.
