DISTRICT 15 – ANCHORAGE
David Nelson was elected to the Alaska State Legislature in November 2020 and represents Muldoon, Creekside Park and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
He spent his youth in Sanford, Florida, with his parents and two sisters. His father is an ordained pastor and has served the Lord in churches from the Bahamas to Nappanee, Indiana. David achieved the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America in December 2012.
Nelson, 24, moved to Alaska in 2015 to attend the University of Alaska Anchorage, graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, and at the same time commissioned through the U.S. Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC). He joined the Alaska Army National Guard as a Second Lieutenant and serves as a Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Officer for the 1-207th Aviation Battalion on JBER. In the spring of 2020, he put his CBRN credentials to work as part of his unit’s response to the COVID-19 emergency.
Nelson learned the importance of community service as a scout and serves as President of the Mid-Town Rotary Club of Anchorage and volunteers at Bean’s Café on weekends when he is in Anchorage. He also enjoys camping and backpacking and embarks on an annual 35-mile single day backpacking trip.
The House organized during the third week of February and now the 32nd Legislative session is in full swing.
I am proud to serve as a member of the House Labor & Commerce, Military & Veterans’ Affairs, and the Joint Armed Services Committees. I look forward to serving on these committees and vetting the legislation that will come before my committees. We have already heard numerous bills and several of the Governor’s appointees in the last few weeks.
The budget process is now well underway in the House. I serve on the House Labor & Workforce Development, Revenue, and Military & Veterans’ Affairs Budget Subcommittees. I’ve had an opportunity to hear about each department and the role they serve in the administration. The budget subcommittees completed the budget closeout process on March 26th.
I’m honored to serve and humbled to have been chosen to represent you and District 15. I look forward to hearing from you during the session. Please email me or call my office at 907-465-4998 to share your thoughts and concerns.
