Rep. Owen Casas is a former U.S. Marine Corps sergeant and Iraq War veteran. Casas ran as an independent because he knew that “an inclusive and moderate discussion that brings the public together is the proper approach for positive change in the community and state.” He won in 2016 on four major platforms -- economic and environmental sustainability, state funding of public education, the drug epidemic, and veteran services.

Rep. Jason Grenn is a fourth-generation Alaskan, was born and raised in Anchorage. After becoming frustrated with his state legislature's inaction towards the budget crisis, he filed to run for office - an hour before the deadline! Jason pulled off a spectacular upset and now works with a bi-partisan coalition to fix the budget issues he felt so passionate about.
