Sen. Sullivan has new regional director for Fairbanks, rural

U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan announced that Greg Bringhurst has been hired as his Fairbanks regional director and rural advisor.

Bringhurst will replace Leslie Hajdukovich, who served in this position for the last four and a half years. 

“I was so thankful to have Leslie representing the office in Fairbanks. Together with our fantastic constituent relations representative Lisa Harbo, Leslie provided excellent service to Interior residents and was a joy to work with. We are excited to bring Greg on board to maintain this high level of service,” Sullivan said in a statement. “His demonstrated leadership and the expertise he’s gained through his previous experiences serving our state make him a welcome addition to our team. I am confident his experience and strong relationships in the community will be a major asset in serving Alaskans in the Interior.”

Born and raised in Fairbanks, Bringhurst was most recently the director of public policy and government affairs at Cook Inlet Housing Authority. He has also worked as a legislative assistant for U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski in Washington, D.C., as a legislative aide in the Alaska Legislature, and for the Tanana Chiefs Conference.

 He was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 1 Fairbanks in the Alaska House of Representatives. Scott Kawasaki won that seat for the Democrats.

Bringhurst has been an active volunteer with many organizations in the Interior and is a graduate of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

  • I will say this about Senator Sullivan, his staff answers the telephone and promptly responds to e-mails.
