EXCELLENCE IN GOVERNANCE

The last three years have been challenging, and we have gone through a lot together. I am incredibly humbled by the experience of serving you as your Mayor and hope to continue to serve you for another three years. I am officially announcing my candidacy for re-election as mayor of the Fairbanks North Star Borough this October.

I am proud of our many accomplishments in the past three years:

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

We redeveloped and initiated the Capital Improvement Program (CIP), where you weighed in on what you wanted to see your tax dollars used for, and as a result, dozens of community projects are in the works.

NEW WEBSITE

We created a new, easy to navigate, borough webpage (fnsb.gov).

We switched the lighting in our schools to LEDs which are saving $1 million in electricity costs annually.

ENERGY SAVINGS

We started an update to the Borough trails plan to provide a better map and plan for connecting our treasured trails.

BOROUGH TRAILS

We created the Regional Emergency Services Advisory Committee (RESAC), which reviews and monitors the provision of fire, emergency medical, and other emergency services in the borough, and makes recommendations to the assembly on how to improve our emergency systems.

RESAC

We started an update to the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) with the purpose of informing and guiding economic development and provide methods to increase resiliency to the borough.

ECONOMIC RESILIENCE

We hosted the first ever Alaska Defense Forum in Fairbanks which provided local leaders with strategies to build strong military-community champions at the state and local level, while educating our statewide defense stakeholders on policy and budget issues impacting our state’s
military installations.
