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.

    Please look ahead to Early 2022! For a most impactful election for district 5, Anchorage Assembly to finally ‘pry’ Forest Dunbar from our group of power grabbing, leftists. Please take ‘5’ to research the big money Washington DC pacs who fund him from afar. Their agenda is to chip away your and my voting power. They are working at all levels from city to National to turn this nation Socialist Marxist. Anyone who pretends to ‘not’ notice, is either in a trance or thinks this will pass them by.. I assure no one live through this unscathed, if they survive at all. WE have a local District 5 candidate you need check out, by name of Stephanie Taylor. Just find her on line. She will be FOR us all not a few.

      I’m intrigued by Stephanie Taylor. I looked at her website to learn more. Unfortunately aside from a few platitudes, there is nothing concrete under her “Issues & Policy” section.

      “Finding permanent solutions to end homelessness and re-investing into our city-center will benefit the entire city for years to come.”. I agree! Can she perhaps share what some of the permanent solutions she proposes are?

      And right below that she rails against taxes. How does she plan to invest in the city center then? There are ways to do it, but her proposals lack any meat. I’d love to hear more about her solutions to these challenging problems.

    One vote in person with ID end of story
    Mail in voting, is for the lazy, cheating, stealing, type of person. These people probably have never been to the polls to vote before. They have no clue what’s going on around them. Just doing what there told Good little Sheep.
