Jennifer needs your support so that she can continue the important work of growing our economy
Jennifer Johnston is a 44-year Alaskan, Mom to three and Grandma to seven. Jennifer and her husband Allan moved to Fairbanks in 1976 and South Anchorage in 1988, where they have lived, raised kids and worked ever since. As a former small business owner, outdoor educator and public servant, she has the experience to put Alaska back on track.
During her time on the Anchorage Assembly, Jennifer was an advocate for sustainable budgets and fought for strategic reductions that allowed for necessary public services to continue. Fiscal reforms she championed ended growing deficits and increased Anchorage’s bond rating to AAA.
Jennifer built on this experience during her first term in the Legislature by advocating for innovative solutions to broken state programs and for millions in targeted budget reductions. She successfully oversaw a budget process that brought state per capita spending back to levels unseen since the 1970s, while protecting our Constitutional obligations.
Additionally, Jennifer and her husband are founding members of the 49th State Angel Fund Network, exemplifying her fundamental belief that when government’s role is limited, an entrepreneurial spirit can thrive.
When Jennifer isn’t hard at work for District 28 she can be found enjoying a hike, bike or ski in her backyard, Chugach State Park.
