Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) – Governor Mike Dunleavy and First Lady Rose Dunleavy extend their heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and constituents of former Alaska Representative Tom Anderson who passed away on Feb. 10. Anderson served in the Alaska House of Representatives for District 19 from 2003-2007.

“Tom was always passionate about what he did,” said Governor Mike Dunleavy. “Whether in the legislature, radio or his personal life, he was committed to serving the people of his beloved home state.”

During his legislative tenure, Anderson advocated for public safety specifically through a bill that broadened the state’s DNA database. Outside of politics, he was an accomplished businessman and a well-known radio personality.

Governor Dunleavy will order the Alaska and the United States flags to fly at half-staff at a date that will be announced after consulting with the family.
