Public Safety is a priority
Please join me this Thursday, October 19th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., at Kincaid Elementary School (cafeteria). Representative Matt Claman and I will be hosting a public safety discussion with the Anchorage Police Department and other local leaders. We'll be talking about how we can work together to make our community safer and we urge you to join us.

Special Guests: Mayor Ethan Berkowitz & Acting Deputy Chief, Sean Case
Dimond High School Visit
I was honored to have the opportunity this afternoon to talk with the Student Government class and other students at Dimond High School.

Don't let anyone tell you our students are not engaged! They asked detailed questions regarding many of the issues concerning our state including the budget, crime, education and more. I was impressed with their level of knowledge and how serious they were about these issues. I left inspired to keep fighting for their future!

It also gave me a chance to reflect and talk about my time as a Dimond High student, my professional life, and what I've learned about local government since I've become your Representative.

Thanks again DHS for having me. And GO LYNX!
Children's Safety Tips
Last Week the Anchorage School District sent out this message to inform all parents and other guardians after there was a reported attempt to abduct a fifth grade student who was walking to school. This follows a similar incident that took place a two weeks ago. The student involved was able to get away and is safe, but it is clear that our entire community must come together to assure that all of our children are safe traveling to and from school. An announcement was made at all schools and students should have received a flyer with safety tips to bring home.

Please talk with your student about how to stay safe and help ensure that all students get to and from school safely.

Here are some safety tips:

•Stay with a group.
•Always walk with at least one friend, two or three is even better. 
•If a stranger offers you a ride, say “NO!” and stay far away from their car. 
•If a stranger follows you on foot, get away from him or her as quickly as you can. You can run and yell loudly, “HELP!” 
•If a stranger follows you in a car, turn around and go the other direction.
•Never leave school with a stranger.
•Tell a trusted adult if a stranger is hanging around the school, playground, or public bathroom. 
•Leave items and clothing that display your name at home so a stranger cannot read it and use it to talk with you. 
•If you arrive home alone, call your mother, father, or other trusted adult to let them know you are home and all right. Keep the door locked, don’t open the door for strangers, and don’t tell strangers that you are home alone.
•Never accept things from a stranger.
•If a stranger asks you a question, don’t talk to them.
•Run away. 
•Don’t go anywhere with a stranger.
