Gov. Mike Dunleavy appointed Glenn 'Mike' Prax to fill the House District 3 vacated by former Republican North Pole Rep. Tammie Wilson.

Wilson resigned from her House seat in January for a post in the Department of Health and Social Services.

Dunleavy appointed Prax to the Alaska State Board of Public Accountancy on Feb. 5, and to the Alaska Public Broadcasting Commission in August last year.

“Mike Prax has demonstrated for many decades that he has the experience, knowledge and leadership abilities to make an effective legislator for the North Pole area,” Dunleavy said in a statement. “He also understands and reflects the values of its residents, so I am proud to appoint him to the House District 3 seat.”

It's unclear what the appointment means for Prax's board appointments.

Prax must first be confirmed by a majority vote of the Alaska House of Representatives.
