Alaska Department of Natural Resources commissioner resigns

Alaska Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Corri Feige has announced plans to resign from her post, effective June 30, saying she wants to devote more time to her family.

Gov. Mike Dunleavy said Tuesday, June 14, that he has accepted the resignation with regret.

The governor praised Feige’s work, saying, “she guided Alaska’s resource development industries through a pandemic without placing their employees at risk, asserted Alaska’s rightful ownership over submerged lands and positioned the state to be more self-reliant and food secure.”

“Her legacy will be with Alaska for many years to come,” he said.

Dunleavy said he plans to appoint an interim commissioner by June 30.
