Matthew Beck

Mayor

“I will work towards building and developing better schools, roads, bridges, trails and communication & information technology and all these items will draw us together by helping us to get from place to place in the borough more safely to visit our friends and family members. They will also strengthen our ability to communicate with each other.”

Tam Boeve

Assembly, District 7

“My job is to listen to and advocate for the diverse rural communities in my district. For example- the proposed Susitna Watana Dam has no local support because the residents understand the significant environmental impact this would have on their community. It is imperative that our residents be part of the public process and have a voice in the decisions that affect their daily lives.”
