Do you know what is happening in Alaska regarding the Executive and Legislative Branches' attempts to exert control over the Judicial branch of government? Join us Tuesday evening, August 23rd, at the home of Sharon Davies at 1510 P St., from 5:30pm to 8:00pm, to enjoy appetizers, wine and beer, and great conversation about this issue!

We will be hosting Heather Arnett with Justice Not Politics Alaska and featured guest speakers, retired Alaska Superior Court Judge Karen Hunt, and Ryan Wright, Executive Director of the Kansas Values Institute and Kansans for Fair Courts.

Commonwealth North past president and retired judge Karen Hunt will describe Alaska's merit-based judicial selection and retention system and recent legislative efforts to change the system. Ryan Wright, Executive Director of the Kansas Values Institute and Kansans for Fair Courts will discuss the Kansas governor and legislature's efforts to increase control over the judiciary and his organization's work to preserve the separation of governmental powers, the foundation of a functioning democracy.
