October Constituent Coffee & Upcoming Events

As a lot of you know it’s campaign season, and Legislative Ethics recommend that legislators take a 30-day break from sending out mass electronic and hard copy newsletters before the general election.

Community Crime & Local Elections

Over the summer, I heard more stories of car and mail thefts, house squatters, drug activity, firearm discharges, car and house break-ins and other disturbing behavior in Fairbanks neighborhoods. The Fairbanks Police Department and Alaska State Troopers are working hard day and night to keep our community safe.
