The Anchorage Assembly will go into executive session on Thursday to discuss what actions it may take after a letter from the attorney of former Municipal Manager Amy Demboski arrived in all 12 of the Assembly in-boxes last week, making a wide range of actionable accusations against Mayor Dave Bronson and members of his administration.
The meeting will take place at the Assembly Chambers in the Loussac Library, at 36th Avenue and Denali Street.
The executive session will follow immediately after the Assembly interviews candidates for the temporary Assembly seat representing Chugiak-Eagle River. That seat was vacated on Jan. 17, when former Assemblywoman Jamie Allard was sworn in as a member of the Alaska House of Representatives. The agenda for the 4 pm meeting and swearing in of the interim Assembly member is here.
At 5 pm is when the Assembly will go into a secret meeting and ask for legal advice from the Assembly attorney on actions the Assembly may take against Bronson. It is likely that impeachment will be discussed, as the Assembly granted itself the authority to impeach the mayor at meeting last year. The accusations against the mayor are contained in this letter:
The Assembly’s work session will start the afternoon, when it will interview the Eagle River candidates, and then will go into a formal meeting to vote on their choice to serve until April 25, when the results of the April 4 election should be known.
