We're not talking major US city here (no offense, Anchorage), so why is there such a big money push for a mayoral race? Is the city that important to AK politics in general?

1. The Kochs are even involved in our mayor's race.

They've been running negative ads against Ethan Berkowitz, trying to tie him to Obama. It's really ridiculous. We all hate Art Hackney, but at least he's local.

2. ALEC's very own ACCE?

American City County Exchange.


"The new network, the American City County Exchange (ACCE), will hold its first public meeting in Dallas, Texas, on Wednesday. It is timed to sit alongside Alec’s annual meeting at which the parent body will debate its usual menu of conservative priorities – pushing back government regulation, fighting moves to curb climate change, reducing trade union powers and cutting taxes."
