An Alaska labor union official says its president sent the wrong message on Bronson flyer. The union president says he won’t retract his statement.


An official with a union that represents a number of blue-collar workers with the state of Alaska, the municipality of Anchorage and other entities said a mailer issued by the Dave Bronson campaign sends an incorrect message that the union has endorsed the candidate.

The Laborers’ International Union of North America Local 71 has not endorsed Bronson, who is running for Anchorage mayor against Forrest Dunbar, said Jordan Adams, the union’s business manager, in a letter to Bronson dated Thursday and posted on the union’s site.

The mailer that Adams references recently hit mailboxes. It’s titled “Anchorage is at a CROSSROADS.”

It contains a quote attributed to Todd Peplow, president of Local 71, that says he and “hundreds of Union members” support Bronson because his opponent, Assembly member Forrest Dunbar, voted to support COVID-19-related business shutdowns.
