I’m running for the Anchorage Assembly, Midtown district seat. I'm an undeclared voter, mother, wife, friend, attorney, small business owner, and I’m a neighbor who has chosen to live in Midtown Anchorage and cares deeply about the future of our neighborhoods. I believe that more can be done with less, close neighbors build strong and safe neighborhoods, and the government should be representative of the people.

Please consider supporting our campaign.

I’m an undeclared voter, mother, foster mom, wife, friend, attorney, small business owner, and I’m a neighbor who has chosen to live in Midtown and cares deeply about the future of our neighborhoods. I’m the kind of person who believes that more can be done with less, close neighbors build strong and safe neighborhoods, and the government should be representative of the people.

As a 13 year resident of Anchorage, I've seen its ups and downs. Despite its challenges, great things are happening, but Midtown is not without its challenges. I want to face those challenges head on to protect our neighborhoods, bridge the gap between commercial and residential needs, create safer communities, and make sure Midtown has the infrastructure in place to take on the future.

Being a good public servant is about listening, and I want to hear from you. You can reach me at 907-306-5052 or email me at megforanchorage@gmail.com.

Community Minded Leader & Small Business Owner

Since moving to Anchorage right after law school, I have worked for Alaskans. As a civil rights attorney, representing Alaskans with disabilities, I helped clients gain access to education, mental health treatment and equal employment opportunities. These experiences were pivotal in shaping who I am. I know how to stand up for people’s rights and I will do that for Anchorage.

While I still continue to practice law, I have shifted my focus to community and neighborhood engagement. In 2015, I opened Anchorage Community House, a small community center.  Through Anchorage Community House I've had the opportunity to use my practical problem solving skills to bring together collaborations that foster community connections and make Anchorage a better place to live. I will use my problem solving and community building experience to continue to work for Anchorage on the Assembly.
