Juneau needs fewer
My name is Connie Dougherty, and I’ve been an Alaskan since the Pipeline Days.
I am a UAA Alum with a degree in criminal justice. I have been a CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocate) since 2012. But my primary role today is as a small business owner, and, like many of you, I’ve learned how hard it can be to make ends meet month-after-month.
Alaska's small businesses are over-regulated and under-represented - we need fewer politicians and lawyers and many more business owners in Juneau. We need to cut A LOT of red tape, remove barriers for business, and let commerce drive our economy forward. As a business owner, I know I can make a difference in District 23.
There are a lot of passions and issues that I deeply care about.
Many of you probably know me from the big neighborhood block parties that my husband and I host every year – even my opponent, Chris Tuck, attends. We love hosting these every year -- it develops a sense of community in our neighborhood. It's always nice to know that people have your back.
Public service used to be a noble task, and those who served in government were revered and respected. But today, politicians cannot be trusted because they routinely run over the will of the people. And because of this, they've lost the confidence of Alaskans.
Those of you that have met me know that I love to talk, but as a hairdresser it is my primary job to LISTEN to people's needs. I’m not your typical, run-of-the-mill candidate. Yes, I am working hard to get elected to serve in the State House, but I won't do it defined as a politician.
I can't promise to fix everything that is wrong with our state government, and you shouldn't trust anyone who says that they can. What I will promise is that, once I have earned your trust, the trust of the people in our district, that I will hear you, I will respond to you and I will work to be the best representative you've ever had.
I would love the opportunity to serve you, and our community, in a bigger way. Please call or text me if you’d like to chat about the race, or about life, or about a problem that you face. You can find all my contact information here.
