Anchorage voters send a liberal majority back to the Assembly in city elections

http://www.adn.com/article/20160405/anchorage-voters-send-liberal-majority-back-assembly-city-elections


The Anchorage Assembly expanded its liberal-leaning majority Tuesday night, with former Democratic state representative Eric Croft moving to victory in West Anchorage, replacing an assemblyman who generally voted with the conservative bloc, Ernie Hall.

With 92 percent of precincts reporting, Croft held a strong lead over challengers Adam Trombley, Ira Perman and Dustin Darden in West Anchorage. Hall did not seek a third term.

In South Anchorage, John Weddleton appeared to be the victor, holding a 290-vote lead over Treg Taylor and a large lead over Mark Schimscheimer with 92 percent of the vote counted. The winner will replace a conservative on the Assembly, Jennifer Johnston.

In East Anchorage, Forrest Dunbar scored a decisive victory over challenger Terre Gales, winning 60 percent of the vote to Gales’ 39 percent.

It looks like the era of Mayor Dan Sullivan is over. .

3. It was already passed in September.

Amy and pals have tried to get a referendum together to overturn it, but it wasn't on last week's ballot, so apparently they didn't get enough signatures.
