Kevin Meyer Edit Profile
Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, University Nebraska, Lincoln, 1978. Master of Public Administration, University New Mexico, Albuquerque, 1982. Master of Business Administration, Alaska Pacific University, Anchorage, 1992.
Meyer has served in the Alaska Legislature continuously since 2003, in the Alaska House of Representatives and Senate, previously representing the district when it was District O. He works as an Investment Recovery Coordinator for ConocoPhillips. 2002 Meyer was unopposed for the August 27, 2002 Republican primary, winning with 1,664 votes, and was unopposed for the November 5, 2002 General election, winning with 4,891 votes (9641%) against write-in candidates. 2006 Meyer was unopposed for the August 22, 2006 Republican primary, winning with 2,530 votes, and was unopposed for the November 7, 2006 General election with 4,893 votes (9455%), against write-in candidates.
In 2013, Meyer voted with the Alaska Senate Majority to pass Senate Bill 21, restructuring the state of Alaska's tax code for oil companies and reducing their tax burden. This vote benefited Meyer's full time employer, ConocoPhillips. (Membership in the Alaska state legislature is not a full time position, and Meyer, like many of his fellow members, maintain full time employment elsewhere, taking leave when the legislature is in session) When the bill came to the Senate floor, Meyer asked to be recused from voting.
In 2015, Meyer announced he had offered a contract for communications consulting to McHugh Pierre. Investigation also revealed Pierre attempted to coerce whistle-blowers into signing non-disclosure agreements prohibiting them from speaking to the media or outsiders about ongoing problems with multiple sexual assaults and other misconduct in the Alaska National Guard. Meyers described the allegations against Pierre, including those contained in the report prepared by the National Guard Bureau's Office of Complex Investigations as "hearsay.".
Under legislative rules, however, a member of the legislature must vote if any other members object, and several did. Pierre formerly served as the civilian second in command for the Alaska State Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, but was forced to resign in 2014 after investigation revealed he had exerted inappropriate and undue influence to derail an investigation of a high school friend of his then serving in the National Guard and suspected of sexually assaulting another member of the Alaska National Guard.
Married Marty Meyer; children: Karly, Valentina.
