Proven Leadership in Public Service

All in for Saralyn!

Saralyn steers a strong, effective, and efficient course:

  • 30+ years at AWARE (16 as Executive Director)

  • Experience growing and maintaining a multi-million dollar agency

  • Committed to engaging and hearing all stakeholders

  • Experience working with Juneau's most vulnerable populations

"In the past four years I have worked with Saralyn and have learned firsthand that she has a strong leadership style based in trust and collaboration, and this is why I feel Saralyn is the candidate most ready to lead our community for continued prosperity."
--Friend and community partner Richard Peterson. #teamsaralyn

During Saralyn's tenure at AWARE, the agency's budget has grown from under $1 million to nearly $3 million, the number of programs has tripled, and the staff has grown more than two-fold. AWARE's capacity to help this community has never been stronger.

"My vision for Juneau is a thriving, 21st century, Capital City where people of all ages - across all cultures and lifestyles - enjoy rich, year-round, fulfilling and secure lives. This happens when we work together, listen to differing views and identify and implement solutions." --Saralyn Tabachnick

Saralyn invites all local residents who share her vision for a united, innovative, 21st century Capital City to join her campaign by contacting her at
