Rep. Tammie Wilson of North Pole has resigned from the House of Representatives.

Wilson made the announcement this afternoon on the House floor, saying that she has taken a job and would need to leave the Legislature to work at the Office of Children’s Services.

She serves House District 3, a conservative part of the state in the Fairbanks North Star Borough.

Rep. Steve Thompson of Fairbanks was among several representatives who lauded her: “Tammie you are going to be missed in this building, you really are going to be missed in this chamber. You’ve always worked for Fairbanks. You’ve always made sure everything is better for Alaska. You work harder than anyone in this building.”
