Former North Pole Rep. Tammie Wilson is the new director of the Fairbanks Office of the Governor. She replaces Jim Sackett, who resigned last month.
Wilson served in the Alaska Legislature from December 3, 2009 – January 24, 2020, and then resigned to take a position as a policy adviser with the Office of Children’s Services.
In her new role as being the liaison for Gov. Mike Dunleavy in Fairbanks, she will also have a secondary role of continuing to focus on Office of Children’s Services issues.
She served on the House Finance Committee, as well as Transportation, Health and Social Services, Labor and Commerce, Military & Veterans Affairs, and the Joint Armed Services committees. She ran for mayor in 2015, but lost to Karl Kassel.
