Group files as Recall Rivera

A group called “Recall Rivera” has launched and announced its existence with the Alaska Public Offices Commission, official filings show. It’s an “independent expenditure” group.

Recall Rivera is chaired by Dr. Russell Biggs, with treasurer Julie Brophy. Biggs was behind the successful petition to put Rivera on the ballot in April. He also fought the matter in court when Rivera’s team tried to block the recall legally.

Rivera represents District 4, Seat G, and voters in that district will be the only ones deciding his fate.

On Feb. 5, another group registered with the commission to mount a campaign to save Rivera from being removed from office.. That group, “No on Rivera Recall,” is chaired by Dr. Peter Mjos. On that team is Democrat operative Amber Lee, who is employed by Lottsfeldt Strategies, owner of the Midnight Sun AK political blog.

The dueling doctors’ groups will work to raise funds and try to persuade voters to either sack Rivera or save him on the municipal ballot.

The voter registration deadline is March 7. Ballots for the April 6 election get mailed approximately March 16.

  1. This is excellent news! Now we must work together, and do all we can, to encourage voters in District 4 to “Recall Rivera” on (or before) April 6th.


    Thank you Dr. Biggs and Ms. Brophy.

  2. Midtown can always use more Conservative minded Republicans. Dont like living in another district? Maybe, well I know! there are residents always complaining about spending so much money on that confounded oversized house you call a mansion and you need a smaller house, so to have more money for supporting candidates. then come on down move into a modest Midtown home. Help us elect a new Senator whom will actually care about All lives living here other than only a people who look like her excluding the rest of us Hahahaha. Midtown Senator doesn’t represent me cause I am not Brown enough. I got the feeling last time meeting this district senator i got to be browner before she recieves me.
