Bart LeBon organizes a rematch with Dibert in Fairbanks

Former Alaska House Rep. Bart LeBon of Fairbanks narrowly lost to Maxine Dibert in 2022, but is looking for a rematch in this year’s election. He filed Tuesday with the Alaska Public Offices Commission as a candidate. Although his paperwork is not yet on display at the Division of Elections, candidates still have to take one more step to get on the ballot.

LeBon is a Republican, Dibert is a Democrat.

LeBon originally won a seat in the Alaska House in 2018, when then-Rep. Scott Kawasaki ran for Senate. The former banker won by one vote over Kathryn Dodge, a Democrat.

He defended his seat in 2020 in what was the largest red wave in Alaska election history, but lost to Dibert in 2022 by 23 votes.

It was known as District 1 until its redistricting in 2020. The district is now known as D-31. This western part of Fairbanks is considered a swing district, with a border similar to that before redistricting.
