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 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.

Yesterday, former Republican state house candidate Don Hadley filed a letter of intent (LOI) with the Alaska Public Offices Commission(APOC) to run for the same seat. No candidate can file with the Municipality of Anchorage to officially run until late January, but filing of the LOI with APOC allows Hadley to begin soliciting and raising campaign money.
Sources with knowledge of the situation have confirmed that 2014 Democratic congressional candidate Forrest Dunbar will file a letter of intent to run for the East Anchorage Assembly seat within 48-hours.
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!!!!!
