Municipal Campaign Season Heating Up
Assembly, School Board seats on the line
ANCHORAGE - The municipal election campaign season is well under way, and candidate debates are just around the corner.
Assemblyman Dick Traini again faces Andy Clary for a Midtown seat on the assembly.
"I think it's certainly fired up -- that was the danger about putting in before the election is -- it's definitely fired up the union folks. You can see by going down to the assembly chambers. And union folks are the kind of people you don't want to tick off right before an election. Because they can mobilize and they can be organized and they can put money into races."
School board races have attracted two former Democratic legislators, Bettye Davis and Eric Croft.
