My name is Stephen Duplantis. I’m a husband, father, pastor, veteran, and legislative candidate – in that order.
My wife Damita and I have been married for 25 years, and we have three fantastic children. After serving as a military dependent and then as a Naval Reservist around the world, we made the decision to return to Alaska and plant our roots here, and we’ve never looked back.
I never considered myself the political type until I realized professional politicians are the ones who got Alaska in the mess we are now facing. Too many good men and women don’t step up to serve in politics because they don’t believe they’re qualified to do so. Alaska’s framers designed the system so that hard-working, honest men and women could serve to make our state better for the people, not just for themselves.
I’m not a career politician and I don’t strive to be, but I know that I can serve our community well in Juneau, and I’d appreciate the opportunity to earn your trust and support in District 24.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or want to have a conversation about the race. All my contact information can be found here.
