Christine Moleski (Incumbent)

A note from Christine:

My name is Christine Moleski and I am seeking re-election to the True North Board of Directors.  I have enjoyed volunteering on the Board for close to 10 years and feel my experience as a private sector business owner and employer helps provide perspective when considering policy and decision-making.

I have lived in the Juneau for over thirty years; raising two children here and enjoy being an active member of the community.

Thank you.
