Local Elections Make A Difference

Contributed by Sabrena Combs

Elections are probably the furthest thing from your mind right now – 2017 is a “non-election” year for the most part. No state or national elections are taking place. But there is an election that should still be important to you - city elections! Often times, it’s these local elections that can make the biggest impact on your life. They can affect the things that matter most to you and your family right here at home. So, it is very important to get out and vote, no matter what.

Palmer’s City Council election is on October 3rd. I am running for one of the two open seats. Some of you may know me from my volunteer work around town. I like to stay very involved and help where I can when it comes to keeping Palmer “Alaska at its Best”. I love this city and I love the direction we’re headed; Palmer is evolving with the times and new and exciting things are always happening. It’s a great time to be a part of the community and the ways to get involved are endless. I’ve always believed that Palmer has one of the greatest volunteering spirits of any Alaskan community as made evident in the endless events we have to offer. I’m ready to take that public servitude to the next level by serving on the City Council. 

I encourage you to visit my website, www.votesabrenacombs.com, to learn more about me and my background here in Palmer. I also urge you to get out and vote on October 3rd - remember you can vote for two candidates in this election. There are three other folks on the ballot willing to devote their time and energy, as well. Help me make a difference in our community and do your civic duty this October! Feel free to contact me any time to talk about your concerns and ideas for Palmer’s future.
