Many Alaska communities are holding local elections on Oct. 5. Most are already underway thanks to mail in balloting. We published our candidate survey results for Mat-SuJuneauKenai and Fairbanks. Click on the above links to read the results. They are telling.

Another insightful survey by Alaska Family Action details where Fairbanks candidates for mayor, borough assembly and school board stand on hot-button issues.

While Alaska desperately needs to reform its election laws, we’re not there yet. In the meantime, we need to make every effort to elect public servants who will take up this cause and restore faith in our representative democracy. Time is literally running out.

Local politics are not typically the big-ticket items that draw voters to the polls, but they directly impact our daily lives. Now that we’ve identified the conservative candidates, it’s time to rally them to victory.
