There's a mayoral election April 7, 2015 in Anchorage. There are lots of candidates and KTUU has interviews with most of them, so you can check there as well as here. I'm not sure how many I'll get, but I'll work on it. Most recent at the bottom.

July 2, 2015: Seven Living Mayors of Anchorage Gather for Berkowitz Inauguration - pictures of all the mayors there and a list of all the mayors from the Borough and from the Municipality of Anchorage.
[UPDATE June 1: Latest post linked at the bottom - looks at election runoff numbers and the implications for the future.]
Here are the candidates I have posted (with videos) about so far:
February 5, 2015 Dan Coffey
February 19, 2015 Andrew Halcro
March 9, 2015 Ethan Berkowitz
Amy Demboski video: My video with Demboski doesn't exist. After a long, friendly phone call with her press person, who promised to call me back, I'm still waiting a couple of weeks later. I did call back a couple of times and left messages. So, I'm not discriminating against her. She's just, apparently, being choosy about who she talks to.
Other posts, with most recent added at the bottom.

April 30 , 2015 My Fantasy: Amy Demboski and Jim Minnery Meet Scott Turner Schofield Scott was the artistic director for Out North in Anchorage for a couple of years. He was fantastic on stage - as a performer and as an MC. He's now going to be on The Bold and the Beautiful. My wish is for these two loudly opposed to gay rights Anchorage residents to watch Scott's Ted Talk about Sex, Gender, and Sexuality, which is in the post.

May 2, 2015 Why Don't Anchorage Mayoral Candidates Fill Out Muni Job Applications?
