PETERSBURG, AK Alaska Governor Sean Parnell today (Wednesday) named Cora Campbell as his choice to be the next commissioner of the Department of Fish and Game. The 31-year old Campbell lives in Juneau, and has been working as acting commissioner since the retirement of Denby Lloyd December 1st. Campbell grew up in Petersburg, and is the daughter of Gary and Christie Slaven of Petersburg. She was one of two people to submit applications for the permanent commissioner’s post, along with 73-year-old Juneau resident Ron Somerville, a former Fish and Game employee and Board of Game member. In making the appointment, Parnell said Campbell’s fisheries experience and broad understanding of wildlife management make her a great fit for the agency. Campbell worked as fisheries policy advisor to Governor Sarah Palin and a special assistant to Governor Parnell. Campbell’s appointment is subject to approval by the state legislature.
