Rep. Scott Kawasaki

November 12, 2018

Dear Neighbors,

Gov. Walker and Rep. Guttenberg dedicate the new Veteran’s Cemetery at mile 344 Park’s Highway this fall.

Veterans’ Day


While our political climate changes around us, it’s important to remember and honor the men and women who have served as protectors of our freedoms and liberties. There is no way to fully thank them for the sacrifices they have made, but if you have a veteran in your life, please make sure to give them your gratitude on this sacred day.


Post-Election Summary


It has been a long election season, and still the vote is not over yet. Absentee ballots are still rolling in and questioned ballots continue to be tallied. The Alaska Division of Elections will continue accepting absentee ballots by mail through November 21, 2018, as long as they were postmarked by Election Day. Only then will the final election results be certified. As votes statewide continue to be tallied in the weeks ahead, you can check results online here.


Thank you to everyone who decided to vote in this election. We live in a democratic republic where every ballot cast adds resiliency to our government and strengthens our electoral process.


No matter the outcome of the election, it has been my absolute honor to serve the City of Fairbanks in the Alaska State House for the past twelve years.


New Governor


I congratulate Governor-Elect Mike Dunleavy on his victory. He will be sworn in on December 3 and expected to unveil his proposed operating and capital budgets on December 15. Regardless of my position in the Legislature, I look forward to working with Governor-Elect Dunleavy to help create a sustainable future for Alaska. As Alaskans, we must work to provide a better state for this generation and generations to come.


Holiday Events


Rep. Kawasaki wraps presents with fellow Rotary Club members last holiday season

Halloween came and went, and the holiday season is fast approaching! Whether you have started decorating or not, Fairbanks and North Pole are getting ready for the following months of cheer. If you and your family are planning on spending the holidays in warmer climates, check out school vacation days for the kids on the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District’s calendar. If you are planning on weathering winter break in town, check out the Downtown Association’s calendar for fun upcoming events for the whole family, such as the famous Moose on the Loose Holiday Scavenger Hunt. Another great place to look up winter festivities is Explore Fairbanks, where you can discover everything from bazaars and marketplaces to concerts and shows. Wherever you decide to spend your holidays, just make sure to be safe out there.


Working Hard for Fairbanks Families,
