Legislators WANT to hear from their constituents!

Staff Council would like to encourage you to take advantage an opportunity to communicate with your legislators. Please read below. If you cannot attend in person, email is an option but please remember to do that on your own time, using your own email and equipment.

Legislators representing Fairbanks and the Interior will have a public meeting on Saturday, February 23. It will be held at the Fairbanks Legislative Information Office (1292 Saddler Way, Room 308) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. As in Anchorage, members of the public will get three minutes each to address the legislators. If you can’t make the meeting, send your Senator and Representative an email letting them know what you would have said if you had been there.
