Amy Demboski running for mayor
An Anchorage Assemblywoman has thrown her hat into the ring to be the next mayor of the municipality.
Amy Demboski says she filed her letter of intent to run Tuesday. The Eagle River-Chugiak assemblywoman says she will be the clear conservative vote in the race. Her priorities are fiscal restraint, essential city services and accountability, she said Wednesday evening. Some of her past roles include the president of the Chugiak Community Council and the chair of the Municipal Budget Advisory Commission.
So far, the only other person to announce their campaign is former assemblyman Dan Coffey, who is an independent. Coffey announced his candidacy last year and has already began fundraising. He had raised more than $50,000 when he filed a financial disclosure back in February.
Anchorage voters will head to the polls to cast their vote for mayor April 7.
