“I spent over 10 years working with legislators statewide to improve public safety in the State of Alaska. During that time, I learned how important is to be politically active so that your issues are relevant and see them to fruition. Now that I have retired from law enforcement, I feel this is the next step in my life to continue to serve my community.”

Doug Massie was born and raised in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. While most of his time has been spent in the Mat-Su, his 25 years as a state trooper have taken him to all corners of the great state of Alaska. It is the time spent in these unique communities, and his love for Alaska that drive him to pursue public office in Juneau.
Doug and his wife Misty have been married for 13 years. They are proud parents to three children, two chocolate labs, and a family cat. Doug is an avid outdoorsman who loves to hunt, fish, ATV, snowmachine, target shoot, and explore Alaska. Spending time on his boat in Prince William Sound is one of his favorite ways to share Alaska with his friends and family. Aside from the great outdoors, Doug has coached youth hockey for over 24 years. He is currently the head coach of two youth teams in the Mat-Su and helped to create an all-girls hockey program made up of all Valley organizations.
Doug graduated from Colony High School in Palmer in 1994. Immediately following high-school, Doug worked on the North Slope in the summers while attending school in the winters. He used his earnings from the North Slope to pay his way through the Public Safety Training Academy in Sitka Alaska (Police Academy) in 1996. Following a 25-year career in Alaska law enforcement, he retired in May 2022. He served on multiple volunteer boards and was an advocate in Juneau for legislation that supported law enforcement officers across the state. Doug is a life member of the Fraternal Order of Alaska State Troopers, and a member of the Alaska Peace Officers Association.
Doug and his extended family own a small business in the Knik Goose Bay area that employs 10 local individuals and works to support the community whenever possible. The business is a strong supporter of the dog mushing and snow machining communities, and they sponsor and host races throughout the winter.
