Kodiak Chamber of Commerce, KMXT Host Senatorial Fisheries Debate.

On October 12th, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium in Kodiak candidates for Alaska’s U.S. Senate seat come together to debate a single topic: Alaska’s fishing industry. Candidates that will attend are: Lisa Murkowski, Joe Miller, Ray Metcalfe, Margaret Stock, and Breck Craig.

The debate, moderated by state Senator Gary Stevens of Kodiak, will be broadcast live on KMXT 100.1 FM, streamed at and broadcast statewide through Alaska Public Radio.

The Senatorial Fisheries Debate has been a tradition since the early 1990’s. The focus on Alaska’s fishing industry highlights the state’s largest private sector employer and gives the candidates an opportunity to discuss federal issues facing the industry.

This two hour event is sponsored by: Alaskan Leader Fisheries, Pacific Seafood Processors Association, Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers, At-Sea Processors Association, Groundfish Forum, UFA (United Fishermen of Alaska), Koniag Inc., City of Kodiak, and the Kodiak Island Borough.
