Juneau delegation scheduled for forum

Juneau’s legislative delegation is set to speak at Wednesday’s Native Issues Forum in the Willoughby District.

Democratic Sen. Dennis Egan, Republican Rep. Cathy Muñoz and House Democratic Leader Beth Kerttula are the guest speakers for the event, which will be held at Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall starting at 11:30 a.m.

The Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska sponsors the Native Issues Forums, which are held about once every other week — usually on Wednesdays — during the annual legislative session. Speakers are invited to give presentations on “political issues of interest to the community.”

Wednesday’s event is scheduled to run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be catered by Abby’s Kitchen.
