John Moller is no longer working for Governor Mike Dunleavy (R – Alaska). The Landmine broke this on Monday, which the Governor’s Office soon after confirmed. But they would not give any explanation, saying they do not comment on personnel matters.
Sources confirm John Moller is no longer working for @GovDunleavy. Moller was a co-chair for Dunleavy’s campaign for governor, and has been working as an advisor for Dunleavy since he was elected in 2018. Currently looking into why he left. #akleg

Moller was a co-chair for Dunleavy’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign. After winning the election, Dunleavy made him part of his transition team. Dunleavy then appointed Moller as a special advisor on rural affairs. Moller was one of the few remaining key staffers that were part of Dunleavy’s original team.
No one in the Governor’s Office will provide any explanation for his departure, either on or off the record. At least three people who work for Dunleavy told me they heard about his departure from the above tweet. A phone call and voicemail to Moller have not been returned.
Moller was supposed to be on calls this weekend regarding confirmation votes for Dunleavy’s appointees that occurred yesterday in a joint session. He was not on the calls, and no explanation was given. For Moller to leave so abruptly and quietly, with zero explanation from him or the Governor’s Office is odd. As is the case in situations like this, rumors and speculation about why Moller left have started. I am working on trying to figure out why he left, but people are being unusually tight lipped about this.
This is a developing story.
