Now more than ever before, the need for congressional term limits is crystal clear. - Sharon Jackson
JUNEAU, AK, March 14, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today, U.S. Term Limits announces that Sharon Jackson has agreed to be the Alaska State Chair for U.S. Term Limits. Jackson brings a depth of public service to this role. She has seen first-hand the need for term limits at the federal level and the depth of support among Alaskans regardless of political affiliation for congressional term limits. She will work tirelessly in her role as Alaska State Chair to see that Alaska adopts a resolution for term limits.
"I am very honored to be serving as the Alaska State Chair for U.S. Term Limits," said Sharon Jackson. "Now more than ever before, the need for congressional term limits is crystal clear. Polls show that over 80% of Americans regardless of political party support congressional term limits. Term limits is truly the one issue that unites all Americans.
"Sadly, serving in Congress has become for many, a lucrative lifelong job rather than a public service," concluded Jackson. "This is part of the reason that latest Gallup poll showed that only 7% of Americans have faith in Congress. Term limits will help end career politicians, restore public trust, and make Congress work better for all Americans."
"We are honored to have Sharon leading our efforts in Alaska to pass term limits on Congress," said Philip Blumel, President of U.S. Term Limits. "She understands the problems within Congress and the need for term limits. Under her guidance, I am confident we will get our term limits resolution passed in Alaska."
Sharon Jackson was born and raised in Philadelphia PA and proudly served in the United States Army which brought her to Alaska in 1983. Upon completing her active-duty tour with the Army she enrolled in Charter College where she became a Certified Electronic Technician for the next 13 years.
Following the tug on her to heart to serve she then dedicated the next 10 years working for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), a state and federal small business lobby and the National Write Your Congressmen where she provided education on legislation that would affect the longevity of free enterprise. Sharon's passion is to empower the people of Alaska to use their influence in government to preserve their freedoms, just as the Founding Fathers intended. In 2015 Sharon became the Constituent Liaison for Senator Dan Sullivan and has found her role in his office assisting constituents to resolving their pressing issues to be very rewarding.
From 2019-2021 she was appointed to the Alaska State House of Representatives representing Chugiak-Eagle River-JBER, District 13.
