FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Candidates for Mayor of the Fairbanks North Star Borough gathered virtually and in-person at the Event Center and Lounge on Sadler Way.

There, Chris Ludtke, Robert Shields and incumbent Bryce Ward fielded questions from the local business community about their priorities for Fairbanks.

Hosted by the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce, this is the third and final event in the Fairbanks Chamber’s series of candidate forums.

Topics under discussion included the borough’s use of American Recovery Act Plan funds, broadband internet access, and taxation in the borough.

Candidates were also asked about the shortage of housing in the borough for incoming military families, and then participated in a rapid-fire question round.

The municipal elections will be held on October 5th.
