Spokesman: Dunleavy visit to be rescheduled due to weather

By  | 

JUNEAU, Alaska Meetings planned by Gov. Mike Dunleavy in Petersburg will need to be rescheduled due to bad weather, a spokesman said Monday.

Dunleavy’s office on Friday announced plans for town halls in Petersburg on Monday and Wrangell on Tuesday as part of what it billed as the start of a town hall series. Dunleavy said he also plans to meet with city, school and tribal leaders and others in communities in which he holds town halls.

Dunleavy spokesman Jeff Turner by email Monday cited poor weather in saying the Petersburg trip would need to be rescheduled. A tweet from Dunleavy’s Twitter account said that due to poor conditions, his flight into Petersburg could not land Monday morning. The tweet said his office would schedule another trip “as soon as we can.”

Juneau was under a winter storm warning through early Tuesday, and Petersburg was under a winter weather advisory through early Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
