Anchorage businessman chooses Ketchikan as jumping-off point, outlines policy positions
“Hello, I’m Scott Hawkins and I’m running for governor.” Scott Hawkins, a long-time Anchorage businessman, chose Southeast Alaska to launch his 2018 Republican gubernatorial campaign. His first official campaign stop was Tuesday night in Ketchikan at the Landing Hotel, during which he spoke candidly to a small group of GOP supporters.
On Wednesday, Hawkins sat down with the Daily News and outlined his positions on a wide range of state and national political issues. Hawkins’ name is unfamiliar to many in the state, largely because he
does not hold political office. Much of the interview was spent discussing who Scott Hawkins is, what he stands for and where he stands on issues critical to Alaska voters.
