Santa Claus, North Pole City Council Member

A jolly Alaskan: The 69-year-old North Pole resident and independent spirit spreads cheer and the spirit of giving in the Last Frontier.

Voice for youth: A volunteer advocate for millions of homeless, abused and neglected children, Santa endorses organizations, agencies and legislative initiatives that aim to improve child health, safety and welfare in Alaska and beyond.

What does Santa want for Christmas? "Love and peace. If we want to live in a peaceful world, we have to instill love in the heart of every child first."
