Last week, KCAW News traveled to Juneau to report a variety of stories. In one of the stories, we shadowed Sitka officials as they lobbied lawmakers for funding on behalf of the city.
The other story will be a profile of state Rep. Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, to air later this week. The Sitka Democrat was elected by a narrow margin over Republican incumbent Bill Thomas in November.
Our profile, and our larger interview, will air and be posted on this site soon. But we also got him to read some of the questions we solicited from listeners via Facebook on Thursday.
Here they are, with his response to follow:

Former Winter Fellow Emily Kwong will be the interim reporter as Raven Radio seeks a permanent replacement. Downloadable audio. more
