Fairbanks is a hidden jewel! I have always thought that. It's a special place and I have been very fortunate to have served Fairbanks as both a City Councilman and City Mayor! That's why I would be honored to serve you again, this time in the Alaska State Senate. Alaska has many challenges and wonderful opportunities. I will bring the same enthusiasm I used to serve Fairbanks to Juneau. I am approachable, accountable and promise to work hard for Fairbanks. Remember to vote November 8!
Not only do I talk to folks often, but I also monitor what's on their minds through Social Media, be it Facebook, LinkedIn, text, face-to-face and email. There are so many ways to communicate. I am raising my sons here and want to make a better Fairbanks for them and your families too.
Will everyone agree with me? No, that's not possible. But I take pride in being approachable; to talk and use civility. It's how we understand each other! I will bring those same qualities while representing you in Juneau.
I was born and raised here in Fairbanks, just like my Mom and Grandfather! I raised my 6 children here and it's been a blessing to serve. In my spare time I like to DJ and Emcee events, play drums and bass, study American History and collect vinyl.
I believe that centrists can get work done. We can't all agree with each other, but the more we find common ground and practice civility, the more we can accomplish.
I helped lead Fairbanks through 12 years of challenges & successes, balanced budgets, stable City employee contracts, and a pandemic, I'd like to bring that to Juneau.
