Statement from Mayor Dan Sullivan
7/14/2009 | Contacts: Sarah Erkmann, (907) 343-7103
“It is with great sadness that I learned today of former Assemblyman Allan Tesche’s untimely death. Mr. Tesche was a committed public servant who worked tirelessly for his constituents and all Anchorage citizens, and he undoubtedly will be remembered as such.
Allan and I spent many years on the Assembly together, and, while we did not always agree, we respected each other’s devotion to improving life for Anchorage residents. His passion was apparent to anyone who met him, and he will be sorely missed.
My thoughts and prayers, and indeed all of Anchorage’s, will focus on Mr. Tesche and his family.”
Mr. Tesche worked as a municipal attorney under then Mayor Tony Knowles, and he served Assembly Seat B (downtown) between 1999-2008.
