Making a Mayoral Move

The Fairbanks North Star Borough has its newest candidate for mayor: Savannah Venetis Fletcher. A member of SEARCH’s Drivers and Ecological Consequences co-production team, Savannah announced her mayoral run earlier this October with supporting a thriving community, communicating openly and transparently, and staffing and operating the Borough fairly and efficiently chief among her goals. “I love our Golden Heart City and the resilient and creative communities that make up our Fairbanks North Star Borough,” says Savannah. “I want to ensure that everything we love about our Borough can be sustained, so that we, and the generations to come, thrive.” One of four candidates currently vying for the Borough’s top seat, Savannah brings with her years of experience on the Borough’s assembly and a career as a civil rights attorney. With a year until the Borough’s elections in October 2024, Savannah’s campaign kickoff next month will start the clock ticking on her latest public service journey.
