THE SOUTHERN REACHES OF FAIRBANKS?

Rep. Scott Kawasaki, the Fairbanks Democrat who is running for Senate Seat A against incumbent Sen. Pete Kelly, has gotten it in his head that the Fairbanks Senate district stretches all the way to Palmer, Alaska, 330 miles to the south.

Kawasaki sent a long letter on his State Legislative letterhead to Richard Best, who was a candidate for local assembly in Palmer, congratulating on his win, telling him how important Best’s work for Fairbanks is, and saying how he looks forward to working with Assemblyman Best for all of Fairbanks.

Best was mystified. Not only is his local senator Shelley Hughes, but he lost his campaign for local assembly to Pete LaFrance.
