Independent, Just Like Alaska
Ron Devon, candidate for State Senate, District N, is a lifelong Alaskan who lives in South Anchorage. Devon is running with tremendous support as a long time non-partisan candidate, and like most voters in the district, belongs to neither political party.
He has been traveling extensively throughout the district, which includes the South Anchorage hillside, Girdwood, Indian, Bird, Portage, Hope, Cooper Landing, Moose Pass, Bear Creek, Lowell Point, Seward, Sterling, Ridgeway and Salamatof. Born and raised in Alaska, Ron is a true pioneer kid. As a successful entrepreneur and small business owner, he knows the value of a dollar, the need to work together, and the importance of standing up for independent Alaskan values.
“I’m tired of the partisan gridlock and special interests in Juneau that have failed us. As a moderate, and (like more than 50% of my district) not affiliated with either party, I will always stand up for Alaskans, and work with both political parties to move Alaska forward.
“Working Together to Move Alaska Forward” isn’t just a campaign slogan for me. It’s why I’m running. Alaska is at a crossroads where lawmakers’ decisions will have an impact; not just on this generation’s quality of life, but that of our children and grandchildren.
“There is too much at stake in our great state to just sit on the sidelines because of personal ideology. The job of an elected official, is to serve Alaskans. To be effective you have to listen and work with others, regardless of their party affiliation.
“I like to think of myself as not running against someone, but rather, running for the district. At the Kenai Industry Appreciation days, a senior woman asked me about my candidacy, my position on issues and what party I’m with. As we talked, I mentioned I was running as a non-partisan candidate and she smiled. ‘Independent! Like Alaska.’ I like to think of myself like that. Independent, just like my state, just like my district.
“With real strength and leadership in Juneau, our state can accomplish great things. As your senator, I will work to stop the legislative gridlock that frustrates so many Alaskans. Believe me, I know how you feel. Working across party lines, we can and must move our state forward to a prosperous future, providing a top-notch education and great jobs for our kids, so they can stay home and find opportunity right here in Alaska.”
