Fair Elects New Board Member

Fair Annual Meeting Recap

Prizes and Election Results

Palmer, Alaska – The 2017 Alaska State Fair, Inc. annual membership meeting took place last week at Raven Hall on the fairgrounds, with approximately 50 Fair members and interested supporters in attendance.

The main item of business was the election of three members to the Fair’s seven-member board of directors. From a ballot of five candidates, including two incumbents, Fair members voted to reelect incumbents Kristy Bernier of Palmer and Danny Consenstein of Anchorage and elected its newest board member, Jason Ortiz of Palmer.  Bernier, Consenstein and Ortiz will each serve a three-year term on the board.

Several lucky Fair members also went home with door prizes, including a 2017 concert ticket package, Fair season pass, a family fun pack, a monster truck ticket package, a Mighty Matanuska Brewfest ticket package, and a Whittier fishing trip for two.
