Meet Dan

Husband, Father, Pilot, Legislator and Team Player

My wife Chris and I have lived in Eagle River for 26 years, raising our kids and watching our community grow. It's been an honor to serve the last eight years as state representative for Chugiak-Eagle River & JBER, and it would be a privilege to continue to serve as your state Senator. May I have your vote in the Republican primary on August 21? My Values >

Military Matters

I am proud to represent JBER in Juneau. Eagle River and Chugiak have a rich history of support for our military service men and women. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

My Commitment to You

I believe public service is a sacred trust, and take very seriously my oath to protect and defend the Constitution in service to my constituents.


You have my commitment to work tirelessly to uphold the Constitution, act only in your best interests, serve ethically and honestly, communicate clearly about what I do and why, and reflect honorably on our beloved Chugiak-Eagle River.

It would be a privilege to continue to serve, and to have your vote on August 21.

Delivering Conservative Results

A good legislator must be productive, not just provocative. I'm proud to work effectively with others to deliver conservative results – achieving real budget cuts, advancing positive bills into law, blocking government overreach, brokering creative solutions, and always advancing the ball down the field. First downs lead to touchdowns! Some of my best "plays" include:

Careful & Conservative

As a long-time Alaska pilot, I've developed the skills to lead:

  • Strong moral compass
  • Years of command experience
  • Record of delivering results
  • Calm under pressure

Dan Saddler


Alaska's been home for 30 years -- 26 of them in Eagle River, where my wife, Chris and I have raised our family and are now enjoying our grandchildren. After my journalism career, I entered public service because I believe our Founding Fathers had it right – free men must step up and govern themselves to protect their God-given rights.

I'm a conservative, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-business, pro-resource development, small government kind of guy. Honesty, integrity, discipline, selflessness, respect and hard work are the keys to success for an individual. I believe Alaska does best when these values guide our state's decisions and actions, too.

For fun, I fly airplanes, fish, play music and write songs, read history, and enjoy Chugiak and Eagle River football and Chinooks baseball. If you see me around town, just wave – I'll be glad to stop and chat!
