Parnell Hires Pebble Flack as Fisheries Adviser

Parnell continues to push unpopular Pebble project over Alaskans’ objections

 ANCHORAGE: Sean Parnell has appointed Ben Mohr, who worked for the Pebble Partnership, as his new fisheries adviser.  Mohr worked for years as a Pebble Partnership employee before joining the Dan Sullivan for Senate campaign.

 “Alaskans overwhelmingly oppose the Pebble Mine, yet Parnell has done everything in his power to push this mine through the permitting process and wreak havoc on Bristol Bay’s valuable fishery,” said Kay Brown, Executive Director of the Alaska Democratic Party.

 Ben Mohr has been appointed by Parnell to replace Stephanie Moreland. Mohr worked six years as a spokesperson for the Pebble Partnership. He also has worked as a campaign manager for Dan Sullivan, the candidate for U.S. Senate who previously pushed for Pebble mine as DNR Commissioner.
