Begich Campaign Kicks Off Kodiak Office Opening With Full House


ANCHORAGE — Mark Begich spent the day in Kodiak where he kicked off another field office opening, hosting a full house of over 40 Alaskans to discuss the importance of Alaska’s Senate race.

The Alaska Democratic Party office will provide a space to the Kodiak community to organize volunteers and discuss the importance of the election with Alaskans.

“Mark’s campaign is based on talking face to face with Alaskans from each village, city and town across Alaska and today’s office opening provides Kodiak residents with a community space to continue growing that same momentum for Mark’s re-election,” said Max Croes, Communications Director for Alaskans for Begich.


While in Kodiak, Begich spent the time at King’s Diner, visited the docks to catch up with fishermen and stevedores, greeted seniors, and toured the Ocean Beauty processing plant.

As chairman of the Senate subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries and the Coast Guard, Begich has a unique understanding of the fisheries industry – which has 76,000 Alaska jobs directly linked to it and brings billions of dollars to Alaska each year – and has worked to secure resources for Kodiak’s Coast Guard base, a critical resource to all of coastal Alaska. He secured three fast response cutters through his role on the committe, is overseeing the reauthorization of the Magnuson Stevens Act, and is leading the fight against GMO’s.
