Alyse is a lifelong Alaskan. After going outside for education, she and her husband returned to Alaska to raise their four children. Galvin is an independent, but because of Alaska’s unique campaign rules, she was able to compete in the Democratic primary. Although technically “undeclared”, she says her positions line up well with the Democratic platform, saying she’s more committed to solutions than she is to any party. Galvin is a newcomer to politics but has had a constant presence at the Alaska Legislature, advocating for better funding for schools. For the past five years, she led Great Alaska Schools, a grassroots effort she helped launch and grow from 40 to 4,000 people statewide. She organized people all across the state and lobbied legislators in Juneau and DC to hold the line against public education cuts that were devastating the schools. Asked if she supports a ban on specific firearms, Galvin reframed the issue around violence and mental health. Galvin advances to the November general election, where she will face U.S. Rep. Don Young, the longest-serving member of the House.
