Erickson named new DMV director

There’s a new director for the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles.

Amy Erickson, a former aide to U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, will start her new job on Monday.

Department of Administration Commissioner Becky Hultberg made the announcement in a release.

Erickson previously served as Murkowski’s administrative director in both Washington, D.C., and Anchorage. Erickson also has previous experience working as a legislative and committee aide in Juneau.

She replaces Whitney Brewster, who accepted a position with the DMV in Texas last summer.
