Lt. Gov. Byron Mallot (I), who was Gov. Bill Walker’s (I) original choice for Lt. Governor and served throughout the Administration, has resigned his position. He admits to making inappropriate, but unspecified comments. Mr. Mallot was immediately replaced in office and on the ballot. Gov. Walker chose Indian healthcare policy advisor Valerie Nurr’arsoluk Davidson both as Lt. Governor and as his running mate for re-election.
The appointment may be short-lived, however. Polling indicates Gov. Walker is trailing badly and is on the precipice of losing his office on November 6th.
