Redistricting to Shuffle Peninsula Senators Once Again

State Senator Peter Micciche may face election again next year, if the Alaska Redistricting Board’s concept plan is implemented.


We asked Sen. Micciche how he feels about the new plan, which would combine Nikiski and Soldotna in one senate district, moving Homer down to join Kodiak…


Sen. Micciche(R-Soldotna): “Well, I’ve enjoyed representing Seldovia and Homer and up the Sterling Highway into Soldotna, of course Kenai. I’d be sorry to see those constituents go, but I’d still work to support the entire peninsula.”


Senator Micciche said he’s stayed out of the process as much as possible, though it could mean he’s on the ballot again in 2014…


Sen. Micciche(R-Soldotna): “The most important thing is that I focus on doing my job as a Senator and not divert my attention to running for office, so you just have to put all those challenges into a mix and make sure you do the job you’ve been hired to do and get your word out to see if the supporters are still there to be successful in ’14 or ’16, whenever we find out what the final results of redistricting are.”
