Flags to be lowered for former Rep. Marty Farrell

Gov. Sean Parnell has ordered state flags lowered to half-staff on Thursday in honor of former State Rep. Martin “Marty” Farrell, who died at age 82 on Jan. 25 in Portland, Ore.

Parnell says that Farrell was a fair person who will be remembered for his public service.

Farrell served as a U.S. Marine during the Korean War. He moved to Alaska in 1959 to practice law. He served one term in the state House of Representatives from 1971 to 1972.

Farrell was chairman of the House Resources Committee in 1972, when the Legislature took up the first major overhaul of state regulatory and right-of-way laws following the announcement that the Trans-Alaska Pipeline would be built.
