Fifty people attended the fundraiser for Stephanie Taylor for Assembly on Tuesday evening at a private home in Anchorage. Taylor is running for the seat currently held by Forrest Dunbar, who unsuccessfully ran for mayor, losing to Mayor Dave Bronson in the May runoff.
Taylor told her supporters that she has been a lifelong volunteer but that the direction the city of Anchorage has gone recently encouraged her to step up. Taylor was a volunteer on the Dave Bronson campaign and is a lifelong conservative.
“I’m not looking for a political career, I just feel that this is a way to serve and a way to effect change,” she told the group. “I’m stepping out.”

Dunbar represents East Anchorage.
