Monday newsletter: Tuesday night fights in Anchorage

Good morning from Somewhere in Alaska … Thank you for your support of this conservative news project. 

I started Must Read Alaska in April, 2015 and have kept it alive and growing, along with the website that launched in 2016, and podcast that began in 2021, for the past seven years with the support and encouragement of so many Alaskans. Thank you all.
The project costs over $60,000 a year to produce, because I get help of about one full-time equivalent person between three people who help out regularly with technical support, optimization, and content such as video projects. I truly appreciate your financial help to keep the small team at MRAK paid. They are so worth it. – sd

Tuesday night fights Tuesday night at the Anchorage Assembly, the leftists led by Assemblyman Chris Constant will attempt to pass an ordinance giving them vast authority to remove the mayor for nearly any reason, in spite of the will of the voters. Watch for a story at Must Read Alaska later today (and be prepared to make your voice heard.)

  1. Frankie and I can’t wait to get up every morning and read the latest MRAK news. Thank you, Suzanne Downing. Without your honest, detailed work, Alaska would be drowning in Liberalism, with the deranged Left-wing nutjobs. We are hoping to get you some more money for Kelly Tshibaka campaign ads at MRAK. Lisa’s ads are great too, and money well spent on helping get Kelly T. elected. Thank you!

  2. This old-time hospitality of socials is one way to win hearts and minds of neighbors to their leader who faces continual rivals animosity when the neighbors socially interact with him.
    Bronson could use more neighbor friends through hospitality and generosity- Better late started then never at all.
