Emily started today with the City Clerk’s Office: My name is Emily Braniff, I was born and raised in Fairbanks. I attended college in Michigan and did my student teaching in Colorado but like so many others, I found my way back to this beautiful place. I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, cooking and travel. I believe summertime in Fairbanks is one of the most beautiful places in the world…. Unless it’s raining nonstop.
