East Anchorage Election


by Gretchen Parsons

ANCHORAGE, AK-It has been an exciting first day of April voters and politicians.

"I’m excited and I think no one would like the campaign to be over more than the candidates at this point," says Pete Petersen.

Trombley, Tosi, and Petersen are all vying for the East Anchorage Assembly seat.

Petersen believes that his time spent in our states capitol sets him apart from his competitors.

"I served two terms in the state house in Juneau. I gained legislative and political experience when I served on some important committees down there,” says Petersen.

One of his main goals focuses on lowering the tax burden for Anchorage property owners

East Anchorage voters know they had to choose between three candidates.

Your Alaska link did reach out to current East Anchorage Assemblymen Adam Trombley as well as candidate Mao Tosi.

However, those phone calls went unanswered, which doesn’t seem to concern all voters.

Some Alaskans say they are more interested in what some of the bond packages might bring to the table.

"Road work and sidewalks care. I think we have been doing fairly well but I bike and walk a lot. I think the city has done a pretty good job keeping those paths open to us but I think we could do better," said William Fuller.

Between bonds and candidates this spring election has made for a spirited campaign season.


Results will show if that same spirit might shake up politics in the state's largest city.
