Alaskan Independence Party Elects a Member to Serve on a Local Hospital Board

Just got this tip from a friend involved with the Alaskan Independence Party. The party appears to have elected a member to a local Hospital Service Board…

John “Ozzy” Osborne was elected to the Central Peninsula Hospital Service Area Board on 10/02/07. He is a long time member of the Alaskan Independence Party, and an AIP candidate for the AK House of Representatives in 2006.

Ozzy currently serves as Chairman of AIP House District 33 Committee.

    What interested me most about this article is that the A(laska)IP apparently organizes itself by legislative districts. I wonder if that works well, it’s an interesting concept in any case.

    It’s probably because Alaska doesn’t have counties the way most states do. They have 16 boroughs that cover a majority of the population, but only a fraction of the land area and the rest is in the Unincorporated borough.

    Hello, I’m Lynette Clark Chairman of the AIP and would like to answer Matt and Randen comments. Legislative District organization, and by a bring a neighbor to the meeting, is how AIP is organized and it does work. If you want to know how the start with your district, just go to our website and bring up the By-Laws. As to goverment division, the Borough is used. It is very similar to the county form but covers a much larger mass of land. And, it is great to have an Ozzie Osbourn in the Party. He made a fine candidate for House and is a hard worker, he will serve the Hospital Board well. A big thank you goes to the AIP Senate Q chairman by making sure this was posted for it to be shared. We are unique, we Alaskans. Lynette
