Tom Begich for State Senate
I love Alaska, and I love Anchorage. I was born here in 1960 and have always been a resident of the state. I first moved to the Downtown district just out of college and I’ve lived in South Addition since 2000.
I met my lovely, brilliant and accomplished wife Sarah Sledge here and together we have created our own piece of paradise in the heart of Anchorage. We have great friends, live in a vibrant community, and have devoted our lives to serving the public through action, our shared commitment to education, and our strong bond to those who live here.
I come from a family of public servants. My parents – Nick, who served in Congress and Pegge, who served as Alaska’s Democratic National Committeewoman in the ‘80s and twice challenged Don Young – imbued each of us children with the importance of public service. We have all followed in their footsteps.
