I'm a product of Midtown.

I've lived in Anchorage my entire life.  I know the challenges our community faces and I'm ready to make a difference.


Anchorage doesn't need any more career politicians. It needs leaders who care.

I'm running to represent my friends and neighbors in District 17 of the Alaska State House of Representatives. I'd be honored to earn your support and vote in this campaign. Please click below to learn where I stand on the issues.

About Marcus

Screen Shot 2017-12-05 at 7.51.28 PM.png

I'm Marcus Sanders.

I'm a husband, a father, an educator, a pastor, and a mentor. I'm proud to say that I have lived in Anchorage my entire life,

I went to school here, I got my first job here, I married here. For the past few years, I've been the safety, security, and discipline specialist at Wendler Middle School, teaching and mentoring kids -- many of whom had a similar upbringing to me.

My parents worked hard to provide for me and my brothers and sister, but they still encouraged me to better myself through quality education and community engagement. I was told in school that I'd never amount to anything -- that all I'd ever become was a worker at a fast food restaurant. 

I refused to let that message discourage me.

If we are going to get serious about our community's problems, we have to be ALL IN.

I'm not running for office because I want to become a politician -- truthfully, I don't.  I enjoy teaching and mentoring. But I am desperate to help solve the problems in our community -- the rising crime, lack of opportunity, and, in many cases, a total lack of quality mentors available to kids. I don't ever want a child in Midtown to be told what I was told growing up. They deserve better than that.

I don't expect to have your trust and support by default, but I will do everything I can to earn it.

Let's take Alaska back!
