Agenda highlights — Assembly Candidates Forum: 

Candidates to represent East Anchorage on the Municipal Assembly will describe their candidacy and issues. The Municipal Election will be held on April 4. School board candidates have been invited though they are scheduled for two other meetings the same night and may not all be able to attend.

1. Fiscal plan for the State of Alaska. Ian Laing, Executive Director of the non-profit group Alaska’s Future, will give a presentation on the need for a State fiscal plan..
2. Parks service extension area – the proposed extension of Municipal Parks service to certain areas of the hillside, which requires approval from ALL Anchorage residents even though ONLY hillside will pay for it.
3. Municipal Bond Proposals – description of other proposals on the ballot of the April 4 Municipal Election.

We are working to establish a phone link to State Representative Lance Pruitt and State Senator Cathy Giessel for their comments on the 2017 legislative session and so they will be able to respond to your questions.

Assembly representatives Forrest Dunbar and Pete Petersen and a member of the School Board will be available to keep us informed on current issues of interest to us or that may require our input for their deliberations.

Please come! We have plenty of room and everyone is welcome. See the paragraph above  this notice for links to the agenda and the newsletter with more information.
