Some have dropped out, some new ones have filed, and some have switched seats they are filing for.

Here is the current list of those who are currently running for Anchorage municipal offices in the election that ends April 6.

The filing deadline is Friday, Jan. 29, at 5 pm. The withdrawal deadline is Feb. 2.

There are four ways to file — City Hall, Election Center, fax, email, so it’s very likely others will enter the races late Friday, and at the last possible minute:

  • We need honest exposure of the agendas of these candidates. Which ones are Left, Right, radicals, in cahoots with the current Assembly, etc.

    Without this, the Left will just deceive everyone again.

  • We should get all these Republican mayoral candidates to join together to beat Dunbar. Otherwise it is Deja Vu (Berkowitz) all over again.

  • I’m curious why you list party affiliation. These are non-partisan seats and party affiliation won’t be on the ballot.

  • Muni Election Rules #1,2,&3

    “”RED””.. ..Remove Every Democrat
