Alaska Congressman Don Young was in Wrangell Thursday as part of a Southeast trip.
He started in Ketchikan on Wednesday and arrived in Wrangell Thursday despite flight delays because of weather.
He met briefly with City Directors including Mayor David Jack, Public Works director Carl Johnson, and Port Commissioner Greg Meissner.
He was scheduled to hold a meet-and-greet with the public in the afternoon. But, according to Chad Padgett, state director for the congressman’s office, he cancelled because he wasn’t feeling well.
He also cancelled his visit to the Shakes House which would have happened yesterday evening.
Padgett says the Congressman does plan to continue his trip.
If he is feeling better, Padgett says, Young will hold a public talk in Petersburg Friday.
Young is a Republican who has served over 40 years as Alaska’s at-large congressman. Before that, he served on the Alaska Senate and two terms in the House of Representatives.
