Former Wasilla Mayor Bert Cottle is now a member of Team Dunleavy. Cottle, who was mayor and assemblyman in Valdez, is also the former chief of police for Valdez. H graduated from Wasilla High School in 1972 and Trinidad State College.

After serving as mayor of Wasilla, he ran for Mat-Su Borough mayor but withdrew late in the race due to a health issue.

In his new role with the Dunleavy Administration, it appears he will be doing out reach with mayors around the state and helping to coordinate and resolve the issues surrounding the federal relief funds sent to Alaska, so that local governments can maximize the dollars and communities can move ahead after the pandemic economic slowdown of the past two years.

  • A RINO hires a RINO, film at 11.

    • Surprised?! Dunleavy is a conservative!? Oxymoron! Emphasis on moron! Sleeping with dogs, zinc being first in line will cause a rash of fleas, cottle fleas that is. Please stay in the race mr Dunleavy, this is getting very interesting and informative as you reveal what you can’t hide any longer!

    • The bland leading the bland.

    • Mongo LC sorry to inform you but Bert is a died in the wool Dumbercrat ! I went to School with him !

  • you have to love the anti-government crowd planning on how to handle government handouts….

    • Suzie, since you attempt use the term “anti-government” as a clear disparagement (rather than the compliment that it actually is), can we take that as an indication that you are pro-government and pro-authority? In this day and age, I can think of no greater insult and condemnation, but perhaps some dyed-in-the-wool conformists and sycophants to those in power actually bask in being such?

  • None of the “ingredients” in the jab are safe in my body or those I love. I want graphite to be illegal to extract from Alaska. Look up graphene oxide and watch it clump in response to 5g signal from a 5g enabled cell phone (They all are at this point). Now put a bunch of this in your body? Frequently? Try not to be tel lie vision entranced. Turn off tv for a week. Globalists hate America, our liberties, supply chains, our health if any, our now very limited faith in the Creator and our relationship with Him, God’s angelic help and our Savior heading God’s Kingdom, and they hate with intensity our US Constitution which has been hospitable to those preaching God’s living word regarding God’s triumphant purpose regarding earth’s real estate He still owns and the heavens/universe forever. Dems and rinos alike are reprehensible.

  • “The earth itself is standing forever. He will crush and bring to ruin those ruining the earth.” And, ruining their way in it by their sorceries, binding others with spells, perverting themselves from theur natural purposes. The devil has come down to you in great anger knowing his time is short. He is going into the abyss prepared for him. There is a new heavens a new earth in which righteous is to dwell. The meek will inherit the earth and will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. Seek first THE KINGDOM OF GOD and all these other things will be added to you.

  • Well! Throw your stones at the leaders when government handouts is the only hope alaskans know and keeps warm by it. All awhile church attendance dwindles, and the word sits on shelves collecting dust and people don’t even know how to read to glean the hope and resilience that are found among the pages. You either have a God dependent people with freedom and peace and prosperity or you see a government dependent people handicapped by their own strength and intelligence.

    • Jen: I disagree with your either-or statement. A belief in your god is NOT required for freedom, peace and prosperity.

  • The fear of the living God is the beginning of wisdom. Wisdom is proved by its works. Wisdom is handling the word of truth rightly. Faith is not the possession of all men. The Chinese miss having a faith. One said sincerely and in tears after years of working so hard for their communist task masters: “We’d like a holy day, too!” In order to have a holiday it seems one must have faith. And associate with others who have faith.
