Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson intends to run for reelection in 2024. He filed his letter of intent Tuesday with the Alaska Public Offices Commission.
The move allows the first-term mayor to start raising the funds needed to stand up a solid campaign when the time comes, and is sends a signal to others that he is in the running.
Bronson first ran in 2021, and won handily against Forrest Dunbar, the Bernie Sanders-style Democrat who serves on the Anchorage Assembly. Mayors in Anchorage serve three-year terms.
Bronson was an Air Force pilot and is a commercial jet pilot. He worked in the Alaska Air National Guard and as in the Air Force Reserve Command.
