Longtime Anchorage resident and businessman Mike Robbins has announced his candidacy for Mayor of Anchorage in the 2021 Municipality of Anchorage Election.
“Our city is in dire straits,” says Robbins. “A government and its leadership shouldn’t ask for forgiveness, but rather for permission from its citizenry. It’s time Anchorage residents are put first,” Robbins added.
Robbins has lived in Anchorage since 1975. He grew up in West Anchorage in the community of Spenard. He’s owned and managed businesses for over three decades, employing hundreds of Alaskans while deeply engaged in community service, civic advocacies and the faith-based community.
Supported by wife Tetyana and his three children, Daniel, Richie, and Elizabeth, all of whom attend and graduated from schools in the Anchorage School District, he is committed to public service. Robbins and family live in lower Hillside where he serves as the GOP HD 26 Chairman in Rep. Laddie Shaw’s district. He has never filed or run for political office.
The Robbins for Mayor campaign team includes co-chairs Mead Treadwell, Alaska’s former Lt. Governor, and Lesil McGuire, former South Anchorage State Senator. Brian Mentzer, former CEO of Anchorage Fracture and Orthopedic Clinic and also of Capstone Clinic, will serve as campaign manager. Carl Propes, owner of Scan Home Furniture and former Heritage Land Bank commissioner, Anchorage Parks & Recreation Commission chair, and Girdwood Alliance member, will serve as Treasurer. Jason Warfield, former Vice President and General Manager for Mercedes-Benz of Anchorage and Worthington Ford Lincoln, will serve as Finance Chair. Additional endorsements and leadership-support announcements are forthcoming in the fall of 2020 after the campaign headquarter launches.
“The Municipality of Anchorage deserves a mayor with the aptitude and skill sets to lead, manage, delegate, and listen,” notes Robbins. “I’ll be accessible, ethical, and on the side of the citizens of Anchorage.”
Robbins is a faith-centered, pro-law-enforcement, pro-business, pro-military, pro-people candidate who will work tirelessly to bring Anchorage back into prosperity. His civic contributions include past and present memberships in the Anchorage Fur Rondy, Rotary, National Rifle Association, Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, Pump Up the Kids – Foster Care Support (Founder), Captain Cook Jaycees, Challenge Alaska, Alaska Institute for Growth, and House District 26 Republicans.
