RE: 2016 Alaska Primary Election

The Alaska Center works to engage, empower and elect Alaskans to stand up for our clean air and water, healthy communities, and a strong democracy.

During this primary election, The Alaska Center spent nearly $25,000 to ensure the successful election of our top three priority candidates: Dean Westlake (D – Arctic), Zach Fansler (D – YK Delta), and Paul Seaton (R – Homer).

Dean Westlake:

  • 6,000 phone calls
  • 10,914 mail pieces
  • 8,406 unique Facebook users in the district reached via 156,227 impressions

Zach Fansler:

  • 9,000 phone calls
  • 12,699 mail pieces
  • 4,829 unique Facebook users in the district reached via 108,084 impressions

Paul Seaton:

  • 250 doors knocked
  • 2,132 mail pieces
  • 9,110 unique Facebook users in the district reached via 91,797 impressions

The Alaska Center was the only organization completing direct voter contact (phone calls and knocking doors) in the above three races. The Alaska Center also worked to help elect DeLena Johnson (R – Palmer), Jim Colver (R – Delta), and Tom Begich (D – Downtown Anchorage) through phone banks, distributing door hangers and other visibility activities.

The Alaska Center is truly a grassroots organization, with thousands of supporters across the state. From now until the general election, The Alaska Center will continue working to support candidates who are committed to the promotion of healthy salmon, clean air and water, and a strong democracy.
