ML&P general manager announces retirement

nherz@adn.comOctober 25, 2013 

The general manager of Anchorage's municipal electric utility has announced his retirement, effective at the end of the year, according to a prepared statement from the office of Mayor Dan Sullivan.

Jim Posey has occupied the position at Municipal Light and Power since 2003, when he was appointed by Mayor George Wuerch.

"The mayor and I had a discussion, and we agree on a date; that's all that matters," Posey said in a brief interview. "I'd been planning on retiring next year, or the next year. This is not bad -- it gives me the chance to do some other things I want to do."

A spokeswoman for Mayor Dan Sullivan said the city would be conducting a national search for Posey's replacement.
