Frasca has held the position twice before, most recently from 2009 to 2012 under then-Mayor Dan Sullivan. She has also served as the state Office of Management and Budget director.

Frasca is filling a city job previously held by Karl Raskiewicz, who moved into the mayor’s office when Craig Campbell resigned in October. Marilyn Banzhaf has been the acting director since then.

Frasca has also worked in government relations and fiscal policy in the private sector. 

Bronson called her “one of the top financial minds in the entire state of Alaska.”
