A special meeting of the Anchorage Assembly was set for Wednesday, June 1 at 5 pm to continue taking testimony on an ordinance that is hostile to the mayor of Anchorage. Anchorage Ordinance 2022-60 would give the Anchorage Assembly the power to remove the mayor for almost any reason it deems sufficient.
The ordinance was written with help from the former City Manager and failed mayoral candidate Bill Falsey. It was introduced last month by Assembly Vice Chair Chris Constant, who has said on several occasions he believes the mayor has acted illegally. This ordinance would give Constant the power to begin proceedings to remove Mayor Dave Bronson, who was elected over opponent Falsey and Assemblyman Forrest Dunbar.
The Assembly will meet at 5 pm at the ground floor of the Loussac Library, and intends to continue taking public testimony on Thursday in Room 155 at City Hall at 10 am. The midday meeting on Thursday in a room too small for public involvement is a method the Assembly uses to end public testimony.
