Quote of the week: Berkowitz on Anchorage’s ‘Food Desert’

“This area is a food desert.”

– Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz at a  Scenic Foothills Community Council meeting on Oct. 5. Berkowitz was making the case for a grocery store-office park planned development planned for Elmore Blvd. and Tudor Road. The site is a current transportation facility for school buses, which the municipality is trying to move. Residents at the meeting told him that food is readily available and that everyone knows where the grocery stores are in Anchorage.

  • Berkowitz is an idiot.

    • Actually, based on my research, he is probably a moron. Have we ever had a mayor with less knowledge or aptitude for municipal affairs?

  • He is worse than idiot, he is a socialist!

  • Government telling the people what they need is brilliant.

  • Nothing like insulting people to get votes.
