A former aide to Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has joined the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC), the organization recently announced.

Miles Baker, who has worked as Murkowski’s state director and finance and economic policy adviser, begins as AGDC’s government relations and external affairs director on Oct. 21.

AGDC President Dan Fauske says Baker comes with “an impressive track record of success.”

“Miles’ extensive experience in the legislature, combined with his leadership abilities and industry knowledge, will be an incredible asset to AGDC,” Fauske said.
