Alaska State Legislature House District 19 (East Anchorage) E-Newsletter

Proudly serving Airport Heights, Mountain View, and Russian Jack

January 31, 2023

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Welcome to our office! I am incredibly honored to represent House District 19 and our neighborhoods of Airport Heights, Mountain View, and Russian Jack in the 33rd Alaska State Legislature.

On Tuesday, January 17th, I was officially sworn by Lt. Governor Nancy Dahlstrom alongside the largest Freshmen class of legislators since 2004! I'm excited to work with all of my colleagues old and new. The Alaska House of Representatives organized on Day 2, with the election of Rep. Cathy Tilton (R- Wasilla) as Speaker of the House and a Republican-led majority.


I joined the 15-member minority caucus, led by Minority Leader Rep. Calvin Schrage (I – Anchorage), and I am excited to serve on the House Health and Social Services committee and House Transportation committee.

Please reach out to my office any time. We can be reached at or 907-465-3424. You may also visit us in person in Room 420 of the Alaska State Capitol.

All the best,

Legislative Update


In the Health and Social Services and Transportation committee, my priorities will include:

  • Increasing health care access, addressing health care costs and strengthening our workforce
  • Fixing the Department of Public Assistance (DPA) backlog crisis
  • Tracking the Medicaid redetermination process
  • Following Federal transportation dollars coming to Alaska from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)
  • Focusing on safe, multi-modal transportation


This session, I stand with my caucus colleagues in support of an increase to the BSA and defined benefits for all public employees. Our students and teachers must have the resources they need to be successful, healthy, and safe in our schools. We have been failing our education system in recent years by not having a BSA that meets the needs of students and teachers across Alaska. And, with significant of outmigration by young professionals like myself, we must return to a defined benefit system to strengthen our public employee workforce.


Additionally, I strongly believe that we must diversify our energy portfolio and focus on energy efficiency to ensure we have a strong, sustainable economic future.


Budget hearings for FY24 have begun. Alaska is facing a large budget deficit, but I believe that we must ensure that we develop a comprehensive and responsible fiscal plan that addresses the budget shortfalls without sacrificing critical state services such as public education, social safety net programs, and the Permanent Fund Dividend.
