House Speaker Cathy Tilton is a Quiet Force to be Reckoned With


Many of us in the conservative movement in Alaska were surprised when the Alaska State House was finally able to organize around the Republican majority that had been elected. For too many legislative sessions, members of the Grand Old Party were not able to play in the sandbox together.Usually, that meant giving the power to the Democrats who then sat in the powerful positions determining what bills were heard and not heard. It was always bad for Alaska Family Council’s legislative agenda.This year, praise be to God, the Republicans in the House (the State Senate is another matter), were able to work with some rural Independent legislators and create a functioning Republican Majority.And they elected Representative Cathy Tilton as the first Mat-Su legislator to hold the position since Jalmar Kerttula in the 1960s.We couldn’t be happier about having her in this important position of influence. Cathy has been a friend and ally for many years. She is grounded in her faith and will be an incredible asset for the next two years.  Please join me today on “I’m Glad You Said That” as I have the pleasure of chatting with House Speaker Cathy Tilton – a good friend, woman of God and steady leader with wonderful convictions.
