I am Lyn Franks and I am running for State House, District 15. This district, which includes North Muldoon and west JBER, desperately needs a representative who understands the neighborhood’s needs and the real problems all Alaskans are facing. My priority in Juneau will be to work with my colleagues on a reasonable state budget.  This includes solid, fair, broad-based revenue streams as well as new sources of sustainable income including green industry. Balancing the budget solely on the backs of hard-working Alaskan families is no solution. A balanced budget is essential for a robust economy and to maintain the integrity of the Permanent Fund now and for future generations.

As an educator, I have worked with hundreds of students from every background, neighborhood, and walk-of-life. There is no better feeling than helping these bright young people realize their full potential. If elected, I will advocate for issues that are important to our community and state. In HD 15 these issues include, but are not restricted to, more protections for victims of crime, an adequately funded educational bill, and a robust PFD.

As the great-great granddaughter of a post-civil war North Carolina state legislator, a southerner who fought to save the Union, and the great granddaughter of Czechoslovakian immigrants who, with nothing, sailed to America in the late 1880s seeking opportunity, I’ve inherited their tenacity, love of freedom, and hope for a better future. 

Achieving sensible public policy to benefit all Alaskans is my goal. Helping Alaskans reach their full potential is my life's work.
