Interior Taxpayers' Association
In Fairbanks, Alaska, ITA stands for the Interior Taxpayers' Association, a non-profit, all volunteer group incorporated in the Interior of Alaska in 1987. Our goal is to ensure the most cost effective government possible, and to make it affordable for everyone to live here, with enough discretionary income to enjoy it as well. We continually strive to lower local taxes, or at least ensure that the taxpayers get their money's worth!

Election October 1 - remind your friends to vote!
We are happy to announce our endorsements made at our Candidates' Forum Friday, September 6.
City Mayor: Vivian Stiver
We made no endorsements for City Council, where neither candidate is opposed.
Seat B: Diane Hutchison
Seat C: Larry Morris
Seat I: Karl Kassel
We are please that the first three endorsements were unanimous, as was their endorsement of the City Proposition (a house keeping matter). ITA voted NOT to support either Borough bond issue.
ITA wants to thank the candidates for participating and to members who listen and cast thoughtful votes, to help us choose fiscally responsible candidates.
REMEMBER TO SUPPORT YOUR FAVORITE CANDIDATE WITH YOUR TIME AND/OR MONEY, AND VOTE OCTOBER 1.
We have been asked to publish the borough salary list. So here it is, in XLSX form. Click here to download. There is also a paper listing specifics of the contract that was pushed by the Borough Mayor and defeated by the assembly. You can pick up a copy from the Ranch Motel.

Our meetings used to be held on the third Wednesday of the month , usually at Denny's, but we have not had a meeting in a long time, as there was not much happening, and we hate to bother people with meetings if it is not strictly necessary. The last meeting was our Candidate Forum, Sept. 22, 2009 at the Assembly Chambers. Sign up on our list to find out about future meetings.
