Senator Mike Shower the F-22 Raptor Pilot

Senator Mike Shower represents District E (Wasilla) in the Alaska State Senate. He is an Air Force veteran and currently works as a pilot for FedEx.

Originally appointed to the State Senate by Gov Walker in January, 2018, to fill the vacancy created when Mike Dunleavy resigned to focus on his run for Governor, Sen Shower won the fall 2018 election and is now serving a full 4 year term.
