Our Endorsed Candidates for Fairbanks
The Alaska Center Board of Directors voted unanimously to endorse eight excellent candidates that Fairbanks voters can elect to the Assembly, City Council, and Board of Education. These candidates would pass a strong Climate Action and Adaptation Plan for the borough, ensure that schools and first responders have the resources they need to care for our community, and protect public processes that involve our communities.
Remember: you can vote for every one of these candidates! These seats are “at large” meaning that you can vote for ALL of these candidates, including City Council if you’re within City limits. The stakes are high in this election: electing just a few more leaders that will champion clean air and water, healthy communities, and a strong democracy can make a huge difference for our community. Don’t skip out on the chance to use your voice!
