This month's guest will be Alaska Governor Sean Parnell. Governor Parnell will be speaking on Securing Alaska's Future, followed by questions and answers from the audience.
Since taking office in 2009, Governor Sean Parnell has set forth his administration’s priorities for Alaska: Strengthening our economy, growing job opportunities, supporting our military community, and promoting safe homes and strong families. This year, he signed into law the More Alaska Production Act, a revamped oil tax system that is already creating opportunities throughout Alaska and laying the groundwork for an economic boom. The governor continues to champion legislation to create a business-friendly environment that increases energy development and grows opportunities for Alaskans. The governor’s signature initiatives include Choose Respect, the effort to end the epidemic of domestic violence and sexual assault across our great state, and the Alaska Performance Scholarship, his hallmark legislation encouraging students to reach higher with their educational goals.
Mr. Henry's is located between the Capitol South and Eastern Market metro stations, on the southeast corner of Seward Square. Bus stops for the 32/34/36, 90/92, and Union-Station-to-Navy-Yard circulator routes are relatively close by.
