Former Rep. Tammie Wilson named as director of governor’s Fairbanks office

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.

  1. Outstanding choice, governor! Not only is she bright, straight-forward, and full of common sense……she also knows where all the Lefty skeletons are located. And she will have no problem pulling them out on occasion, and shaking them up good. 🤣

  2. Tammie Wilson is a good fit for the Dunleavy Administration. She ran for Borough Mayor up in Fairbanks several times. The Democrats threw everything they could to prevent her, especially Luke Hopkins, from becoming the mayor. Hopkins is the guy who almost started a civil war in Fairbanks over his climate change policies against those who needed to heat their homes when the temperatures hit minus 50. Hopkins’ Left-wing kid is now in the legislature and Hopkin’s son-in-law is Scott Kendall who now runs the “Hopkins crime syndicate” and harasses Gov. Dunleavy with recall petitions. Take them all to the pound, Tammie.

  3. Tammie Wilson for US House! Love to see her confront AOC and Pelosi at high noon on the capital mall.

  4. I’d rather see her as North Star Borough Mayor. Fairbanks hasn’t yet recovered from Luke Hopkins.
