Senator Mike Dunleavy Announces Key Campaign Staff

ANCHORAGE, January 3, 2018 — Senator Mike Dunleavy today announced the appointment of key staff to his 2018 gubernatorial campaign.

“I’m excited that Brett Huber has joined our team as Campaign Manager, and Amanda Price will serve as Deputy Campaign Manager,” Dunleavy said.  “Together, they bring a powerhouse of talent, connections, and political savvy to our growing organization.”

Brett Huber has extensive experience in business management, public policy, and grass roots organization.  He served as Chief of Staff to former Senator Rick Halford (R-Chugiak) and the Senate Resources Committee.  He also worked as Chief of Staff for Senator Lesil McGuire (R-Anchorage) and the Senate Rules Committee, Chief of Staff for Senator Mike Dunleavy, and Policy Advisor to Senator Pete Kelly (R-Fairbanks).

Huber also brings to the campaign his in-depth knowledge of natural resource policy and fish and game management.  He previously worked as Executive Director of the Kenai River Sportfishing Association, and as a Program Director for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.  Huber is past President of the Alaska Outdoor Council and AOC Political Action Committee.  He also served as Chairman of the Public Advisory Committee for the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council.

“Brett Huber is gifted with that rare combination of policy expertise, plus the talent to lead a team of people in a common cause,” stated Dunleavy.  “I’m thankful that he’s investing his time and energy in our campaign to turn this state around.”

Amanda Price brings to the campaign nearly two decades of experience in government affairs and organizational management.  She most recently served as Senior Advisor to Governor Bill Walker on issues of violent crime prevention, intervention, and response, and policy with a particular focus on the epidemic of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Price served as the Executive Director of the non-profit Standing Together Against Rape (STAR), the only statewide agency serving victims of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and child sexual abuse.  She has been an active community leader holding many roles including serving as the Finance Committee Chair and Legislative Committee Member for the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. Price was also appointed to the Municipality of Anchorage Housing and Neighborhood Development Commission.

“Amanda Price’s expertise in strategic organization, planning, and fiscal responsibility will be crucial as our campaign builds momentum,” said Dunleavy. “Even more important is her deep knowledge of the public safety challenges facing our state, her knowledge of the resources available to our state, the gaps in service that exist, and immediate steps that can be taken to protect Alaskans. Amanda brings fresh, innovative, solution-oriented ideas to the table, and our campaign is fortunate to benefit from her many talents.”
