Elisa Snelling is running for Seat G on the Anchorage School Board.

Born and raised in Anchorage, Snelling says she’s “a product of the Anchorage School District.”

“I have watched the school district from my time there to my children’s time now,” said Snelling, adding that she’s seen changes in not only the district but the Anchorage area as a whole. “My growth in the Anchorage area and with my kids and my family here, it has encouraged me to take a run for this school board seat and make a difference.”

Snelling says she wants to mesh her experience in the area with her business experience to “bring more accountability and transparency to the board and to the district.”

“The numbers junkie that I am, I have a very hard time finding the answers to my own questions, regarding the budget online,” she said.

The 2015 Municipal Election will be held Tuesday, April 7.
