Anchorage Assembly to consider taking action against member who made controversial statements on Nazi-themed license plates


An Anchorage Assembly member has introduced a resolution that would publicly acknowledge another member’s recent behavior as “actions and conduct that breach the public trust.” The member, Jamie Allard, recently came under fire for comments she made on social media about a pair of Nazi-themed vanity license plates.

At the Assembly meeting on Tuesday, members will consider the resolution, sponsored by member Meg Zaletel.

Allard became embroiled in a controversy in late January as photos of state-issued Alaska license plates reading “FUHRER” and “3REICH”circulated on social media. Allard, who represents Eagle River and Chugiak, made comments on Facebook about the plates. Gov. Mike Dunleavy subsequently removed her from her position on the state’s Human Rights Commission.

The resolution accuses Allard of using her social media platform in her capacity as an Assembly member “to defend language that is unequivocally associated with Nazis, making egregious and patently offensive statements that seriously erode the trust and respect of Municipal residents and are improper for a public official.”
