Jollie, of Anchorage, has more than 20 years with the state, including 10 years as the lead administrator for Workforce Development programs.

Kreitzer, of Juneau, served most recently as the acting chief of staff for former Lt. Gov. Loren Leman. She also worked for Leman for eight years when he was a state senator.
