About Jeff Landfield
Jeff moved to Alaska in 2004. He graduated from from UAA in 2009 and worked in the IT and telecom industry for 7 years. He ran for State Senate in 2012 as a completely unknown candidate against an incumbent Senator and almost pulled off a shocking upset, garnering 44% of the vote in the GOP Primary. In 2016, he ran again for the same seat and lost – badly. He is well known for his eclectic personality and shenanigans, most infamously his “Speedo-gate” scandal. He recently returned to Alaska from Australia, where he spent almost a year working and traveling.
“Running for state senate was a great experience. I had fun, learned a lot and met some great people. One of the most important things I learned was how much goes on behind the scenes that does not get covered or reported. My goal is to report as much of this as possible in a fun, entertaining and high energy way. Nothing and no one is off limits.“
