  1. I know we all tend to complain about how far downhill Anchorage has slid, but truth be told, conservatives did let a lot of this happen, either by not supporting good people for office, or worse, not running anyone at all for these seats. In a vacuum, liberals will come in and tear the city apart. It’s not too late to change- good people can still win in Anchorage. Dave Bronson is proof of that. But only if conservatives actually engage, persuade and inspire. Talk to voters, get them excited and willing to show up. If enough of us show up, we should at least be able to break the veto-proof liberal majority on the assembly. There is a way to win- if we have the will.

  2. Looks like there’s a conservative (or at least, someone who isn’t a left-winger) running in all the assembly seats (not sure about the first school board seat). Not a bad start. Now let’s go elect them!
