Nikki Rose announced her run for the Anchorage Assembly seat being vacated by Tim Steele, who has resigned for health reasons. She filed her letter of intent today and has already received checks supporting her campaign.
Rose is president of the Sand Lake Community Council, executive member of the Federation of Community Councils, and a member of the Assembly’s Committee on Homelessness. She has lived in West Anchorage for more than 30 years. The Sand Lake Community Council has created a very active community patrol and public safety will be one of her main concerns on the Assembly.
She attended Grace Christian High School, and UAA, graduating with honors, and is now a mother of a five-year-old. What catapulted her into politics was seeing how much Anchorage had changed in the three years she was out of state while her husband was in law school.
Austin Quinn-Davidson has also filed her letter of intent for the seat. She practices environmental law with Great Alaska Land Trust, and she and her wife are with the Vote Yes on One salmon initiative.
This election will be vote-by-mail, and ballots should be going out July 17. Ballots must be returned by election day, August 7, 2018. Yes, that is a very short time-frame for this election.
