Valerie Therrien has been a progressive voice in Fairbanks politics for at least 30 years that I have lived here. Currently, she is a candidate for mayor of the city of Fairbanks, and I support her 100%.

For the past 40 years, her professional life has been busy as a lawyer. She has also served our Fairbanks community as a volunteer in civic organizations and as a public servant, either as a member of Fairbanks City Council or the Borough Assembly.

Mary Kehrhahn-Stark lives in Fairbanks.
