The April, 2022 race for Anchorage Assembly is off to a strong start with Kathy Henslee taking on incumbent Meg Zaletel, the same Zaletel who is also under the shadow of a recall attempt for District 4, a south midtown seat.
About 75 people gathered at the Henslee campaign headquarters in Spenard on Thursday to hear Henslee speak about the city she was born and raised in, and how she wants to be part of bringing it back to life. She said that Anchorage has become almost unrecognizable under the leftist leadership of the past six years, and it’s time to turn the corner.
Henslee has taken over the office space where Mayor Dave Bronson had his transition office. Bronson was at the event to introduce Henslee and throw his support to her candidacy. She also launched a website.
