Election Day is fast approaching, and Unalaskans will have the chance to cast their ballots in a number of state races on November 6. This week, KUCB is airing interviews with candidates for Alaska’s one congressional seat and with the region’s representatives in the State Legislature who are up for reelection.

Today, KUCB’s Alexandra Gutierrez has this Q&A with longtime Rep. Don Young. He's running against Democrat Sharon Cissna. In their conversation, Young expresses support for the inclusion of Unalaska in an Arctic drilling revenue-sharing plan, hashes out an idea for leasing more icebreakers, and talks about future expansions of the Akutan airport.
