For Alaska Only
Governor Mike Dunleavy and First Lady Rose Dunleavy issued the following statement on the passing of Nome Mayor James "Richard" Beneville:
“Richard Beneville was a true leader who left a positive impact in Nome that will never be forgotten,” said Governor Dunleavy. “His years of public service – serving three terms as Nome’s Mayor – and true love for the City of Nome exemplified his Alaskan spirit. Nome will not be the same without Richard. Rose and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Beneville family and the entire Nome community for their loss.”
Governor Dunleavy has directed Alaska state flags to fly at half-staff in honor of Richard Beneville on Monday, May 18, 2020.
**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the Half-Staff or Half-Mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
