Mayor Ethan Berkowitz
Mayor Ethan Berkowitz is proud to be an Anchorage resident since 1990. He met his wife Mara here, at the old Fly by Night Club. Now their two kids benefit from our city’s public school system and many of the other opportunities Anchorage provides.
When Mayor Berkowitz first arrived in Anchorage, he worked as a lawyer in the state criminal appeals court. He then became an Anchorage-based prosecutor in the District Attorney’s office. After his time as a prosecutor, Ethan was honored to represent West Anchorage in the Alaska House of Representatives for ten years. During his tenure he led efforts to expand Alaska’s energy development, diversify our economy while also championing fiscal responsibility.
Like many Anchorage residents, Mayor Berkowitz enjoys Anchorage’s unique recreational and cultural opportunities, whether it’s skiing on the Coastal Trail or ice-skating on Westchester Lagoon. In the summer, family hikes in the Chugach range are a must. He and his family recognize how lucky they are to live in this amazing city.
