ADN Responds To Mayor's Accusations
Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan accuses ADN reporter of making inaccurate assumptions about his stance on homeless protester
In response to the mayor's point about our story describing him as "peeved," I think his criticism is fair. Our story made an assumption about his feelings about the man on the sidewalk that, whether accurate or not, we shouldn't have made. It's no excuse but the reporter did try to ask the mayor about it directly, but couldn't get through to him.
I have to note that Mayor Sullivan's assumption about who put what in the story is actually wrong, which simply reinforces the point that making assumptions is seldom a good idea.
