Dan Coffey Announces Run For Anchorage Mayor

Dan Coffey has filed a letter of intent with APOC to run in Anchorage’s 2015 mayoral election.

A 65-year resident of Anchorage, Coffey says this decision has been in the making for a long time.

“I have a lot of knowledge and experience in local government level, and I thought I’d try to bring that to the office of the mayor of Anchorage,” he said.

Coffey says the city’s housing and homeless issues played a part in spurring him to run for office.
