VIDEO: Anchorage Assembly Passes Resolution Recognizing Greek American George Vakalis

  • Written by 

The Anchorage Assembly recognized and honored George Vakalis, for his service to the Municipality, under Resolution No. AR 2016-173.

Vakalis served as the Municipal Manager for Anchorage and as the Garrison Commander for the U.S. Army here in Alaska, among other local leading positions.

Tonight's commemoration was a surprise to George Vakalis. The Greek-American's wife told him they were going out to dinner with their daughter.

George Vakalis explained, "We pulled into the parking lot here at the building, and I said, 'This is the library, why are we going here? There's an Assembly meeting tonight here,' and she said I know...and of course that was it; we walked in the door and I was recognized."
