I am supporting Bob Sivertsen, for House District 36, because of who he is, not because of the party he is affiliated with or any political names or tags that might be applied. I have watched Bob's involvement and dedication to our community; he does not take his responsibilities lightly. Bob puts in endless hours with his obligations, yet takes opportunities to help others without sacrificing the important time with his family.

As a teacher, I have seen Bob dedicate time in schools to help students. He has spent time in local classes speaking about the city council. He has dedicated time to help elementary students with their math assignments. He has read to students during Dr. Seuss day and even done face painting for local fund raising events. Bob connects with students, and truly believes they are the most powerful investment for our future. He supports education and will reinforce his principles to ensure that our children have a bright future!

Bob is inventive and resourceful! His problem solving skills will no doubt be a tremendous asset, especially when considering Alaska s financial crisis. I am confident that Bob will work hard to represent House District 36! He will be in the front line of decision making to ensure that our communities are well represented!

I am a teacher and I support Bob Sivertsen!
