Fairbanks conservatives surged to victory in 2020 with seven of eight races going their way. In an effort to build on this momentum and elect even more strong pro-life and pro-family candidates in Fairbanks, Alaska Family Action has released its latest Values Voter Guide.

On Oct. 5, Fairbanks residents will elect a borough mayor, three members for borough assembly, two for school board and two city council members.

The new voter guide breaks down where Fairbanks candidates stand on a whole host of key social issues, including religious liberty, LGBTQ ideology, abortion funding, mask mandates, critical race theory, diversity training, sex education and more.

In the last Fairbanks election cycle conservatives had a strong showing, adding three conservative voices to the borough assembly, two to the school board and two to the city council. This was partly the result of dozens of local churches working together to distribute the Alaska Family Action voter guide to thousands of area residents.

Alaska Family Action President Jim Minnery said he hopes this same dynamic unfolds in 2021.

“In addition to so many active houses of worship willing to educate their members about the importance of Biblical citizenship, Fairbanks has done an extremely admirable job, for the most part, of keeping their local races free from the ‘circular firing squad’ syndrome,” Minnery said in announcing the new voter guide. “By that, we mean having multiple conservatives in a race battling a lone liberal candidate thereby spreading the vote out and effectively handing the seat over to the progressives.”

Alaska Family Action sent its survey to every Fairbanks candidate running for local office. Ten of 19 candidates responded. Click here to read their answers.

    After receiving a voter guide from our church this past Sunday I thoroughly started to research each person. We noticed after researching Chris Ludkte that that the voter guide had some funny business to it. So I emailed Chris directly and ask him his stance and he quickly responded and stated that there was a misrepresentation on the printed version that went out to most places in Fairbanks. After clicking on the link above I can see that the digital version has fixed his answer. Chris gets my vote however the damage has already been done and most people will take the printed version to the polls.

    It’s about time we put common sense and Alaskan core values back in office. Anchorage, and the lower 48 snowflakes have been try to weave their wicked web here in the Heartland.
