Alaska attorney general begins work

Posted: Tuesday, December 28, 2010

JUNEAU - Alaska's new attorney general is now officially on the job.

John J. Burns had been transitioning from his job as a corporate and insurance defense attorney in Fairbanks to the new role since Gov. Sean Parnell announced his appointment late last month.

A spokesman for the state Department of Law said Burns' first official day was last week. Burns replaces Dan Sullivan, who Parnell picked to lead the state Department of Natural Resources.

The picks are subject to approval by the state Legislature.
