Anchorage, AK – Alaska Congressman Don Young today announced his participation in five debates and forums prior to the November 8, 2016 general election. Congressman Young will join Alaskans in Fairbanks, Anchorage and across public television to share his position on a number of critical issues and give Alaskan voters a clear choice for the United States House of Representatives this fall.
“As this campaign moves forward, Congressman Young continues to share his message far and wide – connecting with Alaskans from across the state,” said Alaskans for Don Young Campaign Manager Jerry Hood. “In addition to a robust schedule on the road system and across rural Alaska, Congressman Young looks forward to participating in these forums and debates to discuss the many important issues of our time and to share his vision for a stronger, more vibrant Alaska.
