Hi, I'm Will
WHERE I COME FROM
I’m Will Stapp and I believe in Civic Duty and Public Service. I first came to Fairbanks in 2006 after I enlisted in the U.S. Army as an Airborne Infantry soldier during the height of the Iraq war. I was stationed in Alaska at Ft. Wainwright over 15 years ago and volunteered to serve two combat tours in Iraq, one of which I was wounded and awarded the Purple Heart. Professionally, I have worked as an Insurance Agent in employee benefits over the last 10 years assisting hundreds of local small and large businesses across our wonderful state.
I have been an active community member by volunteering at the Fairbanks Rescue Mission, involving myself in local politics, and raising a beautiful family in the Golden Heart City.
Service Above Self
I have been a member of various organizations that work to help make our community better.

Why am I Running?
Vision Meets Opportunity
Our community faces difficult challenges. I believe that through due diligence, hard work, and above all listening to one another we can move Fairbanks forward.
I am a Republican and Fiscal Conservative.
I am Pro-Development
I am Pro-Business
I am Pro-Life
Above all, I am a true believer in our town and it’s potential. Alaska is in a tough spot and Fairbanks faces many challenges. My life experience has taught me to be an eternal optimist and I fundamentally believe that through the pursuit of sound policy, innovation, and due diligence, we can put Fairbanks back on the right track.
