Division of Elections changes leadership
Division of Elections Director Whitney Brewster tendered her resignation to Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell, because she accepted a position with the Department of Administration as Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles.

"It has been an honor working under Lieutenant Governor Parnell's leadership and with the hardworking professionals at the Division of Elections. Being the director of Elections has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I look forward to serving Alaskans as the Director of the DMV."

Brewster was director of the Division of Elections for two years and worked to ensure the security and accuracy of elections procedures and equipment.

"I am thankful for Whitney's service at the Division of Elections and am confident she will take that same standard of excellence into the Division of Motor Vehicles," Lieutenant Governor Parnell said. Gail Fenumiai, Assistant Director to Administrative Services in the Office of the Governor, will assume the post of Director of the Division of Elections effective Jan. 2. Fenumiai has significant experience at the Division of Elections, having worked as Election Coordinator, Information Officer, and as an Election Program Specialist, in over a decade of elections-related service spanning numerous administrations.
