Kreiss-Tomkins: From campus to state house

Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, D-Sitka, will represent House District 34 beginning on January 15, 2013.


Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins was elected to the Alaska Legislature in November though the election wasn’t settled finally until early December. Since then, the 23-year old has been working to build the relationships he’ll need to represent the new district, both as a freshman legislator, and as a member of the Democratic minority. Every politician has a first day in office; for Kreiss-Tomkins, it’s also the first day of his professional career.
