Gubernatorial candidate Byron Mallott lives in Juneau and has a campaign office, bank account and website here.
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – The campaign of Democrat Byron Mallott is seeking guidance on fundraising under a law that bars gubernatorial candidates from soliciting or accepting contributions in Juneau while the Legislature is meeting.
Mallott lives in Juneau and has a campaign office, bank account and website here.
A draft advisory opinion from the Alaska Public Offices Commission says calls from Juneau to individuals outside the city and borough during session are permissible but calls to individuals in Juneau aren’t. It also says calls not soliciting money are allowed.
The draft opinion says the campaign can accept contributions sent to its Juneau mail box or bank account that originated outside Juneau but those made by individuals in Juneau during session would have to be returned.
The draft is subject to consideration by the commission.
