Welcome to “JB” Brainerd, Deputy City Attorney

Please help us in welcoming our new Deputy City Attorney, John “JB” Brainerd. JB started with us September 2 at the City Attorney’s Office:


“I moved from Minnesota to Fairbanks with my family when I was 10. After graduating Middlebury College (1988) in Vermont, I moved to San Francisco, CA. While in San Francisco, I graduated Golden Gate University School of Law with my Doctor of Jurisprudence (1999) and Master of Laws in Taxation (2001). I moved back to Fairbanks in June 2005 so I could be closer to family, friends and the great outdoors. I enjoy cycling in the summer and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snow machining in the winter. When not in the great outdoors, I can be found at home with my family and our three dogs and cat.”
