A key Municipality of Anchorage elections official is now the head of a nonprofit group responsible for promoting downtown Anchorage.

The Anchorage Downtown Partnership announced Monday that Amanda Moser is its new executive director, starting immediately.

“Through her tenure, she managed and administered all aspects of Anchorage’s municipal elections for 122 precincts,” partnership officials wrote in a Monday statement. “Amanda was a major factor of creating and successfully implementing the Vote by Mail project for Anchorage.”

Moser also worked for the State of Alaska last year, assisting with the coordination of former Gov. Bill Walker's trade mission to China.

“We are thrilled to have found a talented and respected leader with a proven history of involvement in our downtown community," Holly Spoth-Torres, president of the partnership’s board of directors, said in its statement. “Amanda brings new energy and a collaborative style to our mission of a clean, safe and vital downtown.”

According to the partnership’s website, the executive director position has been held on an interim basis by former University of Alaska Anchorage vice chancellor Rachel Morse.
