Supporters walked for Walker Mallott all over the state on Independence Day

On July 4th the Walker Mallott Campaign celebrated American independence, liberty, and patriotism and honored the men and women who have served to protect those sacred values. The Walker Mallott team was across the state, as Unity Ticket supporters organized July 4th celebrations in 15 different communities.

While there were official events in Seward and Anchorage, the campaign team was spread throughout the rest of Alaska. Re-election supporters marched in parades in:

  • Bethel

  • Homer

  • Juneau

  • Kenai

  • Ketchikan

  • Kotzebue

  • Nome

  • Sitka

  • Unalaska

  • Valdez

  • Wasilla

  • Willow

  • Yakutat

Volunteers were also in Seward and at a booth in Anchorage collecting signatures for the Independent ballot petitions. The July 4th celebrations came after a two week period in which Walker Mallott had campaign events in Anchorage, Juneau, Sitka, Fairbanks, Bethel, Valdez, and King Salmon.

Campaign Spokesperson Lindsay Hobson said, “We have been overwhelmed by the support the campaign has received from across the state. July 4th is a day to celebrate the democratic freedoms, rights and opportunities we enjoy as Americans. There is no better symbol of those freedoms than the independent, Alaskan leadership of Governor Walker and Lieutenant Governor Mallott, who continue to place the needs of the state above party politics.”

Bill Walker was born in Fairbanks and Byron Mallott was born in Yakutat, both in the Territory of Alaska. As workers, mayors of their hometowns, and community and business leaders, both have been present for the pivotal moments in Alaska’s history. As the only independent governing team in the nation, their administration worked to lower the cost of exploration by partnering with industry on infrastructure development, opened historic new trade ties between Alaska and Asia, and successfully fought for a fiscal plan to stabilize Alaska's economy.
