There’s more gossip on the Grenn recall effort, speculation about 2018’s elections and word of a bump-in at the movies.
On our May 14 episode of Alaska’s most listened-to political podcast, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar discuss the hot political issues of the day– James Comey’s dismissal, the state budget, the legislative session as it careens towards overtime, the Real ID bill, and the censure of Rep. David Eastman. Casey and Forrest are also joined by a surprise guest this week. Former legislative staffer and UAA student Genevieve Mina tells us about her experience as a young person in Juneau during the legislative session. We greatly appreciate Genevieve being available on short notice, after an extended House floor session on Saturday prevented our previously-scheduled guest from making it on the program.
The 2017 Anchorage election isn’t entirely in the books. There’are a School Board race and several ballot propositions still in doubt, but for the most part, we now know how things turned out.
With that in mind, here are my thoughts on last night’s winners and losers.
Anchorage elections are here!. What is being said, where are the parties, and what is the turnout so far? It’s Friday in the Sun!!!
Begich rallies moderate Dems, Sadler argues with kiddies, and Felix rakes in cash. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!
Bill Evans dumps his party, David Nees dumped from the ballot and liberal activists need to dump their message. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!
Gabby and Charisse fight, Begich comforts Dems, and Nees steps in and then goes off. It’s Friday in the Sun!
Vazquez’ APOC pain, David Wilson’s vendettas, and Don Young still scaring DC. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!
Alaska State House Republicans have hired a new press secretary, and it’s a name you probably know.
Since this is the first day back at work for many of you, I thought we’d kick off 2017 with some New Year’s resolutions we imagine some elected officials, institutions, and politicos might — or should — have considered.
