    Strong Fairbanks conservative aims to reclaim spot on Assembly to defend property rights

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    Former Fairbanks Borough assemblyman, Lance Roberts, announced June 4 at the GOP luncheon at the Westmark, Fairbanks that he intends to run for the Borough Assembly once again in the 2021 contest.

    Roberts served on the Assembly from 2012 to 2018.

    This was a long awaited and heavily applauded decision by conservatives around the borough as he is in favor of low taxes and limited government involvement.

    Well known as a principled social and fiscal conservative, Lance was born and raised here in Fairbanks. He is a UAF graduate with three degrees, and he works as a professional engineer with Golden Valley Electric Association. He is currently a member of the State Local Boundary Commission and author and publisher of the Fairbanks Conservatives newsletter and Facebook page.

    “I decided to run again as I saw the amount of economic damage that was done to our community due to the government reaction to the COVID virus,” Roberts told the Watchman. “The Borough, even in these times of COVID, has continually increased spending every year and the tax burden needs to be reduced. It is also pretty costly for people to develop their land and use their property for their benefit. I’ve monitored the Assembly for the last three years after finishing my two terms on that body, and see that there are things that need to be done to lessen government’s role in people’s lives.”

      • There is no local election with Communist Dominion voting machines tabulating votes out of Communist China supported by our corrupt Politicians that will not even say the word Dominion……. We are governed by pathetic treasonous cowards and we the people must stand and take back the stewardship they have betrayed. it is so game time and Liberty is on the line. If your rep will not speak about the theft of your sacred vote calling out Dominion then they are purchased by China.

        • Fauci and the medical tyranny didn’t kill themselves but by villanizing and intentionally banning Hydroxycloroquine and ivermectin they did murder thousands,,,, DO NOT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS!!!!!!

PRETENDING THAT THE BUDGET MEANS A SHIT OVER THE LOSS OF OUR VOTE, …. AHH YES I WILL SCREAM FOR MY REPUBLIC AND STATE AND I WILL FIGHT FOR HER. IT IS OBVIOUS THEY HAVE QUIT ON US THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO SAY,,,,,,, THIS WORD IS YOUR MASTER AND YOUR POLITICIAN HAS SOLD YOUR VOTE SOUL AND FREEDOM,,,, THAT WORD IS DOMINION.. THE COMMUNIST CHINESE PARTY THROUGH A SWISS OWNED SUBSIDIARY PURCHASED ALL DOMINION MACHINES PRIOR TO THE NOV 3 ELECTION FOR 400 MILLION BUCKS. POOF YOUR VOTE IS GONE,, ALL IS ILLUSION. OUR STATE JUST HAD TO HAVE THESE DEMONIC MACHINES AND I DONT WONDER WHY? NOW YOU EITHER FORCE THESE COWARDS TO SAY THE WORD AND REINSTATE OUR SACRED VOTE BY ELIMINATING ALL THESE COMMUNIST CHEAT DREAMS LIKE MAIL IN VOTING OR YOU DESERVE THE CHAINS AND SHACKLES THEY HAVE LAID OUT FOR YOU. THEIR DEMONIC GLOBALIST LEADER KLAUS SHWAB HAS STATED YOU WILL OWN NOTHING AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY,,, THAT MEANS YOU!!!!!!!! GATES OF HELL AND FAUCI ARE THE HENCHMEN DOLING OUT THE VACCINE TO WEAKEN AND CONTROL US AND OUR GOVERNOR IS A PUSHER OF THIS.. HOW IN THE HELL DOES A MAN COERCE CHILDREN TO TAKE AN INJECTION OF SOMETHING THAT WAS BEING TESTED THEN STOPPED THE TESTS BECAUSE ALL THE TEST ANIMALS DIED??? THAT IS WHO WE ARE DEALING WITH HERE…. NOW EITHER YOU STAND AND MAKE CLEAR TO THOSE WHO THINK THEY ARE KINGS AND QUEENS.

I SURE KNOW I AM… GOD BLESS AND GIVE YOU ALL STRENGTH AND COURAGE FOR THESE UPCOMING DAYS THAT WILL TRY MENS SOULS.

    4. People have to support conservative candidates no matter where they live in Alaska. We have to retake the state from the bottom up–school boards, city councils, borough assemblies and then the state offices and federal offices.

    5. Unless we have smashed DOMINION,,, IT DOES NOT MATTER…. OUR VOTES ARE JUST PISSIN IN THE WIND,,, BETTIN ON A LOSIN FRIEND…..
