Gov. Sean Parnell is hosting an online town hall Wednesday.

He is inviting people to send in questions on education and other "key" issues facing the state via Facebook and Twitter or by email, at AskAKGov@alaska.gov. Twitter users are asked to use #AskAKGov.

Spokeswoman Sharon Leighow says beginning at 6 p.m., there will be a live stream from the governor's house as he takes questions.

While Parnell's office has held telephone town halls in the past, Leighow said this will be the first virtual town hall.

It comes with the scheduled end of session looming on Sunday.
