  • Vote no on forest dunbar

  • Messrs. Robbins, Bronson, and possibly Evans need to determine some means to ensure that the “we need to change” vote is not split 3 ways, resulting in a run-off that (no matter the outcome) is between two candidates who will simply continue the Berkowitz approach and legacy.

    I suspect there’s a real chance that the two highest vote totals will end up being Dunbar and Falsey if the (call it what one will) conservative vote is split 3-ways. Unfortunately, I can’t offer a solution, but I believe the current slate of candidates will result in a pretty easy path forward for Dunbar.

  • Dunbar is a complete idiot, only a fool would support him, I guess that’s why he’s a democrat.

  • I would like to ask each candidate one question, with a very simple answer…”I agree”, or “I disagree”. Where do you stand on making anchorage a sanctuary city?
    I know that all caniidates or their staff monitor this website, So I welcome each and every candidate to go ahead and leave your answer on this thread. It just helps voters decide who they want to be leading our city.

    Thank you

  • Seriously Conservatives! Get it together! How many circular firing squads do we need to be the victim of before we figure out how the damn game is played??? ONE! One good candidate! ONE! Jesus H.

  • I am not a Democrat. I’m also not happy with the Republicans either after the obvious coup they helped accomplish.
