JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Democratic candidate for Alaska governor will not seek re-election next month to the board of directors for a Juneau-based regional Alaska Native corporation.

Sealaska Corp. says in a statement that Byron Mallott will step aside to concentrate on the gubernatorial race. His term expires June 28, when the board conducts its annual meeting in Seattle.

Besides being on the board, Mallott was a former chief executive officer of Sealaska Corp.

The November election is expected to be a three-way race between Mallott, Republican incumbent Gov. Sean Parnell and independent Bill Walker. Mallott is a Tlingit who was born in Yakutat.
