“I have had the privilege of being with the Alaska chapter of Americans for Prosperity since we first opened our doors here in 2014,” said McKee. “I am proud of the work our organization has done for Alaskans. As I step into the role of State Director, I look forward to continuing AFP’s mission of helping Alaskans live a more free and prosperous life.”
