Education advocate Alyse Galvin to challenge Congressman Don Young

Emily Russell- January 11, 2018

A release from her campaign introduces Galvin as a mother, a leader, and a fighter for working families in Alaska.

Her career has largely focused on education, working for years as a teacher. More recently Galvin founded the public education coalition called Great Alaska Schools.

It was through that coalition that Galvin spoke out against the nomination of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education for the Trump Administration.

Along with continuing to advocate for public education, Galvin’s campaign announcement says she will focus on healthcare, the economy, and the opioid epidemic.

Galvin will run as an independent candidate and appear on the Democratic primary ballot in August.
