Patrick Flynn

The self-described lifelong Alaskan is a graduate of Alaska Pacific University.

Actively involved in his district’s Community Council, Fynn says if re-elected he’d like to tackle the issue of affordable housing.

“I’m working on legislation for the east downtown, the Fairview area, that would allow for redevelopment using some tax credits that would include work on housing that I think would help address some of the concerns around housing that the community is facing,” Flynn said.

Mark Martinson

The 62 year old is a chemistry professor at University of Alaska Anchorage.

Martinson has held numerous leadership positions throughout the state, including a post as a community planner in False Pass.

“I lived in Anchorage for quite a while and lived in the state of Alaska a long time. I’ve seen a lot of wasteful energy methods,” Martinson said. “Alaskans used to be energy conservation experts and now we’re energy consumption idiots and I’d like to see Anchorage lead the way in conserving energy instead of consuming petroleum.”
