This week the Tongass Democrats have our monthly business meeting on Thursday, and the CBJ Assembly has an important Finance Committee meeting where they will consider the future of the Juneau Public Library’s outreach funds (Action Alert).

Meeting locations, dates, and times below the fold.

Tongass Democrats 
The regular monthly business meeting for Tongass Democrats is held the first Thursday of every month. So, that means we all get to see each other this Thursday, June 1, at 5:15 PM at the IBEW hall (813 W. 12th St., Juneau).

City & Borough of Juneau Assembly and Committee Meetings
This week, there is only one meeting on the official CBJ Assembly calendar, but it’s an important one if you love the library. See the Action Alert that went out this morning for details. Assembly Chambers are located at 155 S. Seward Street.

** Note that the agenda links may be directly connected to documents that you’ll be asked to save.

  • May 31, 5:30 PM – Assembly Finance Committee Meeting, agenda, Chambers

Agendas and additional information can be found at the CBJ Agendas and Minutes page.

Alaska State Legislature  
As of publication time, the only public testimony opportunity that had been available this week (House Resources Climate Change Commission) has been canceled. Looks like both houses of the Legislature are adjourned until Tuesday; their calendar is here.

However, I received an email from my union last week that, as a State employee, I should not be surprised if I get a layoff notice soon due to the lack of a budget, and I suspect that things might get more exciting over there in Special Session Land as people start receiving those.

So, you might want to keep an eye on the Legislature’s public testimony page, as things might get more active there soon. In the event that there is a public testimony opportunity, but you can’t attend in person, contact your Legislative Information Office for assistance.

Please note that all of that the information in this post is believed to be accurate at the time of publication, but things might change. When they are available, I’ve included links to official websites so you can double check.

Have a wonderful week,
