Better? Dentist puts smiles on faces with his ‘No more losers’ LED sign aimed at Dunbar

must-read-alaska-donations bronsonformayor

Dr. Ken Wynne, a dentist with a practice in South Anchorage, got the attention of the Alaska Public Offices Commission with his LED building sign that proclaimed messages opposed to Forrest Dunbar for mayor, and in favor of Dave Bronson.

Wynne received a call from Tom Lucas of APOC, because the message on his sign could be a campaign violation, since it is on a commercial building, has no “paid for” disclaimer, and might be seen as a business contribution to a candidate. It could be, but then again, it might not be.

This afternoon, Wynne changed the LED message to one that he hopes will meet the requirements of APOC:

“NO MORE LOSERS FOR MAYOR! NO MORE LAWYERS OR POLITICIANS! TIME FOR A DECENT, MORAL PERSON FOR MAYOR — DAVE BRONSON.”

Whether that will satisfy APOC is hard to say. Wynne could become more cryptic with his signs and still get his message across.

[Read: Is this sign legal? It depends.]

The mayoral runoff has officially begun as voters in Anchorage report they have received their ballots today. They must be received by the Anchorage Election Office by May 11.

Dunbar is the progressive candidate running with support of the Alaska Democrats, while Bronson is the conservative candidate running with the support of Republicans. During the April 6 election, Bronson brought in 2 percent more of the vote than Dunbar, but not enough to avoid a runoff.

  • So Dunbar is a immoral person?

  • Here’s hoping enough conservatives come out to keep Forrest running….on out of our town!

  • Run Forrest run….far, very far.

  • Yes

  • I would have left the sign as it was because all the hypothetical BS they raise doesn’t mean a thing. Just the Muni government using the clout of the Muni to screw with the candidate running against Dumbar.

  • Stand your Ground!
    Dr. Ken
    You have my support

  • Harbor, yes he is.

  • Thank you, Dr. Wynne, for taking a stand! We stand with you, and I don’t even live in Anchorage.

  • Dunbar is a communist. I think Berkowitz is the immoral person- although I think any ideology that murdered 100 million last century (mainly of their own people) and shot people trying to climb over the wall they built to keep them IN—could accurately be described as, well, not just immoral, but downright EVIL.

    So yes, I think the sign and the sentiment behind it is accurate and in many ways, understated.

  • The sign speaks the truth.
