Court complicates midtown campaign

Today we conclude our series of reports on the Anchorage Assembly races in the upcoming April 1st, Municipal Election. The midtown Seat G contest features an unusual mixture of candidates, issues, voters…and the courts.

UPDATE (Thu, March 20, 2008)

After this story on Assembly Seat G was produced and posted, the Alaska Supreme Court announced it will hear arguments about incumbent Dick Traini’s right to run for re-election. The municipal clerk filed an appeal with the Supreme Court after a Superior Court Judge ruled Monday, March 17th, that Traini could not run. The Supreme Court has said it will expedite the case.
