About

AK Ledger is an online news publication covering the Alaska State Legislature for the 2019 session. Helmed by veteran reporters Craig Tuten and John Aronno, we hope to provide in depth coverage and insights into state government. We probably won’t be the first to print the story, but our goal is to paint the full picture; providing depth, context, and the occasional breakage of the fourth wall – be it concrete, steel slats, or fencing.

Craig Tuten served as a staff writer for Alaska Commons, covering the Alaska Legislature for three years. After a brief stint working as a legislative aide to former Rep. Les Gara (D-Anchorage), Craig returned to Alaska Commons as co-host of its podcast. He has lived in Alaska since 2006.

John Aronno is a former columnist for The Anchorage Press, and was co-founder, managing editor, and award winning political writer at Alaska Commons. Aronno has had his work featured in The Huffington Post, The Alaska Dispatch News, Alaska Public, and The Rachel Maddow Show. He lives in Anchorage, Alaska, with his wife, Heather Aronno, and a lot of pets.
