FAIRBANKS - The top spots in the Alaska House Republican leadership team do not include the Fairbanks area.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports all those posts - including speaker, majority leader and finance chairmen - went to representatives from Southcentral or Southeast Alaska.
Fairbanks and North Pole will have two representatives on the House Finance Committee.
State Reps. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, and David Guttenberg, D-Fairbanks, will join the panel, which previously included Rep. Mike Kelly. Kelly lost his re-election bid Tuesday.
House Democrats this weekend released committee assignments, and it appears Fairbanks might wind up with more representatives on the special Fisheries Committee than on any other panel.
