One Anchorage firefighterâ€™s union is getting into the Anchorage municipal elections in a big way. The International Association of Fire Fighters – Local 1264 PAC has purchased $30,000 worth of ads on local radio stations to support assembly candidates Forrest Dunbar, Eric Croft, and John Weddleton.
The latest APOC reports are out for Anchorage’s spring elections and they give us pretty good clues about who’s contending, who’s pretending, who’s hoping to get paid, and who’s putting their members’ money where their mouths are.
Dustin Darden shows up in the darnedest place, Croft has a big one, and we respond to the AK GOP…Its Friday in the Sun!!!
The latest round of campaign finance disclosures are out, and they matter. A lot. Candidates, parties, and flacks are all full oâ€™ bluster and spin about their campaigns and their performance, but pesky statutorily-required campaign finance reports give citizens an unspun window into exactly where things stand. No one can hide from the numbers. They are cold, precise, and ultimately unflinching. To paraphrase the great football coach Bill Parcells, you are what your fundraising numbers say you are.
Former mayoral candidate Dustin Darden has filed to run for the West Anchorage Assembly seat. He joins a crowded field that currently includes former Assemblyman Adam Trombley, Ira! Perman, and former state legislator Eric Croft.
Who is Mark Schimscheimer, where is Tony Hopfinger, when will we see LGBT rights repealers, and how will legislators find a way out of voting for new revenues? Its Friday in the Sun!!!!!
The AG is clampin down, Parnell is gettin paid, and Gov Walker’s crib sheet fail. Its Friday in the Sun!!!!!!
Walker poised to ax another Parnell guy, Perman and Croft continue to wrestle in West Anchorage, and the South Anchorage races get going. Its Friday in the Sun!!!!!
AK GOP’s new girl goes after Giessel, Ira sign trolls Croft, and everyone is running in the valley. Its Friday in the Sun!!!!!
Dems pulling together to elect their guy, Republicans ignoring their girl, and union fraud finally on trial. Its Friday in the Sun!!!
