A realtor from Eagle River has filed a letter of intent with Alaska Public Offices Commission to run for the seat being vacated by Anchorage Assemblywoman Jamie Allard, who has won her election to the legislature by a landslide.
In 2015, Myers (pictured above) was named 30 Under 30 by REALTOR® Magazine and in 2016 he was featured on the cover of Top Agent Magazine. He’s the president of the South Fork Community Council, and the Board of Equalization, and the Zoning Examiner Board of Appeals. He is a former board member for the Eagle River Chamber of Commerce, and was president of the Anchorage Board of Realtors and Realtor of the year in 2018.
Allard’s is one of six seats that will be on the March-April ballot.
Also filing a letter of intent for the coming cycle is Assemblyman Chris Constant, who represents the downtown area of Anchorage. Constant is currently the vice chair of the Anchorage Assembly.
Dayton Ikaika Keliikipi Jr. has filed a letter of intent for the District 4 seat on the Assembly. It’s now represented by Felix Rivera, who has also filed for reelection after surviving a recall attempt in 2021. If elected, Keliikipi, who has lived in Anchorage since 2000 and is a military veteran, would be the first Native Hawaiian elected to the Anchorage Assembly.
Also on the ballot this coming March-April is the seat being vacated by Assemblyman Forrest Dunbar, who is going to the Alaska Senate after winning on Nov. 8. Pete Peterson’s seat representing East Anchorage is up as well, as he is term-limited.
Assemblywoman Austin Quinn-Davidson, who serves for west Anchorage, has said she will not run for reelection.
The Anchorage municipal elections begin March 14, with the filing period at the Clerk’s office opens Jan. 13, and closes Jan. 27. Anchorage has all-mail elections and ballots must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, April 4, 2023.
