The city of Emmonak mourns the loss of one of its great leaders, Martin Moore Sr., who recently passed away. During his approximately 26 years of public life, Moore held a variety of positions including State Legislator, City Manager, President of Emmonak Corporation and Alaska Native Commissioner under Gov. Jay Hammond. He overcame poor eyesight to serve his community right up to the end of his life and was instrumental in bringing many common necessities to Emmonak, as detailed by Nicholas Tucker Sr., acting city manager, city treasurer and lifelong friend of Moore. Moore was working to help everyone in Emmonak until he could not work anymore, Tucker stated.
