Citing Alaska's struggling state budget, Quist said "Our state is in crisis now, with health and economic struggles. The legislature's failure to act over the past two years has made this crisis worse as we have emptied the budget reserves and have little rainy day savings left to help us weather this storm."

He lives downtown with his wife Naomi Hutchens, and their two dogs.
