Explain the firing

With the firing of Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation Executive Director Angela Rodell at the corporation’s quarterly board meeting, a full explanation needs to be provided to the public.

Why is it logical to fire the person in charge of the state’s $83 billion nest egg, particularly after the fund’s value grew by 29.73 percent over the past year under her leadership?

During her six years on the job the fund grew from $51 billion to $83 billion.

Rodell has pushed for careful, thoughtful management of the fund and has advocated for a conservative approach to spending the fund’s earnings.
