Meet Jim

I am honored to be the Democratic Party's candidate for the Alaska State House of Representatives in District 13, which represents Chugiak and Eagle River. I am an Air Force veteran, graduating in 1974 from the U.S. Air Force Academy. I then completed my UPT (Undergraduate Pilot Training) and received my USAF Pilot
rating in 1975.  I spent thirteen years in the Air Force; 11 years as a pilot, the final two years as a staff officer in Alaska. I have called Eagle River, Alaska, home and lived in District 13 for the past twenty-three years. I am running to represent our community with honor, integrity, and distinction.


  • Every person deserves fair and equal treatment.

  • Permanent Fund should be preserved and protected.

  • I support a strong public education system.

  • I support improvement of infrastructure.

  • I support responsible gun ownership.

  • I support fiscal responsibility.

Two truths about politics. First, don't elect someone that wants the job so badly they will do anything to get it. Second, the best representation is self-representation, but the next best is to elect someone you can trust to represent your interests fairly and honestly. The key to the word representative is represent. That's what I promise to do, represent you to the best of my ability. I
do not have solutions to the difficult problems we face. But you do! My sole purpose is to be the advocate, facilitator and expeditor for your wishes, aims, goals, and needs at the State level. If that is what you want, I humbly ask for your vote. Together we can succeed!
