Walt Monegan announces run for Anchorage Mayor

Former Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan plans to run for Anchorage mayor. Monegan is a former Anchorage police chief. Governor Sarah Palin fired Monegan as commissioner of Public Safety in July. Monegan says he was dismissed for failing to fire Palin’s ex-brother-in-law, an Alaska state trooper. The matter was reviewed by an investigator hired by the Alaska Legislature and one hired by the state personnel board. The legislature’s investigator concluded Palin had abused her office. The personnel board concluded Palin violated no ethics law.
