What could go wrong?

When you take a look at the staggering list of mayoral hopeful Forrest Dunbar’s union support and realize an attack ad aimed at his opponent Dave Bronson is financed almost entirely by an Outside group, you have to wonder: If Dunbar were to win the mayoral runoff election that ends May 11, who is Dunbar […]

Birds of a feather

Reading mayoral hopeful Forrest Dunbar’s campaign endorsements is more than enlightening. It is frightening. They include: The Alaska Center, United Brotherhood of Carpenters, Local 1281, International Organization of Masters, Mates, and Pilots, Teamsters Local 959, Anchorage Firefighters Union Local 1264, Anchorage Democrats, Alaska Public Employees Association/American Federation of Teachers Political Action Committee EPIC, Anchorage Education […]
