Elections that make the biggest impact on daily life are often the ones with the lowest voter turnout.
Contests for school board, borough assembly and city council don’t generate the advertising budgets, radio and television ads and roadside signs of statewide and national elections but they do dramatically change communities, for better or worse.
On Oct. 6, Alaskans have the chance to reshape local political bodies, and Alaska Family Action is working to ensure that solid conservatives fill these seats.

The Alaska Family Action is a statewide advocacy group that strives to elect men and women who hold traditional family values on unborn life, marriage and family, parental rights and religious freedoms. This year they embarked on an ambitious campaign to ensure that residents in the Mat-Su, Fairbanks, Kenai and Sitka know where their candidates stand on critical issues.
The AFA’s 2020 Endorsement Guides looks to “advance Biblically aligned policies by helping conservatives get elected,” a notice from AFA President Jim Minnery states. “Certainly, no candidate is ever perfect, but we’ve done our best to work with local influencers, ask questions and research individuals to put together these guides to help you make informed decisions.”
The guides can be downloaded and are easily shareable.
