ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Kodiak chiropractor charged with three felonies has been withdrawn from consideration for a state board.
Gov. Mike Dunleavy in January nominated 45-year-old Christopher Twiford for a seat on the Alaska Workers’ Compensation Board.
Twiford was arraigned Tuesday in Kodiak on three counts of felony assault. He’s also charged with misdemeanor assault and possession of a weapon while intoxicated. He did not respond to requests for comment Thursday.
The Workers’ Compensation Board reviews labor regulations and resolves disputed benefits claims.
