Welcome Andrew Davenport to the City of Fairbanks

Please help us welcome our new employee, Andrew Davenport, to the City of Fairbanks. Andy is an equipment mechanic at our Public Works Department. He has been a temp employee since May 5, 2014 and became a permanent employee on September 1, 2014. “I grew up in Salcha, Alaska attending Salcha Elementary School until 1993 then finishing up my years at Ben Eielson High. After graduation, I traveled to Wyoming for a year at Wyotech where I earned a program diploma for automotive/diesel/fabrication and high performance engine building (just in case). I returned to Alaska after school and worked numerous jobs on the north slope before spending a long stay with Alyeska. A growing family and home life left me wanting for a position involving a little less travel. I enjoy all the staple Alaskan activities such as hunting, fishing, traveling the local rivers and spending quality time with my wife, scrambling around after our kids.”
