Alaska Tourism Industry Association, Fairbanks Chapter Forum

In 2000, they had a forum in the Borough. Assembly Chambers Their forum included, Borough Mayor, Borough Assembly, and Fairbanks City Council only. The public was welcome. We are still trying to find out if they are doing one this year. For information, call 479-6673.

North Pole Candidate Forum

In 2000, they held a forum at North Pole City Hall. They included only the Borough Mayor seat, the North Pole City Mayor seat, and the North Pole City Council seats, so we suspect they are not having a forum this year. For information, call 488-2281.
