As rumored would happen in early October, Anchorage Assembly member Forrest Dunbar has filed for the office of Mayor of Anchorage. The election for that seat is in April, 2021.
Dunbar, a solid Democrat who registered as a nonpartisan, and then re-registered as a Democrat, won District 5 Seat H of the Assembly in 2016.
Previously, Dunbar was a 2014 Democratic candidate for the the U.S. House, running and losing against Congressman Don Young in 2014.
Mayor Ethan Berkowitz, Anchorage’s current Democrat-registered mayor, is term-limited and ineligible to run again. No other candidates have registered with the Alaska Public Offices Commission for the seat.
