OPEN ANCHORAGE SCHOOLS

The meeting is Oct. 6, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Anchorage School District Office (5530 E. Northern Lights). A notice for the event says it is a protest “calling all property taxpayers, fed up citizens and angry parents … tell them enough is enough!

Q&A WITH GROUP SUING ANCHORAGE ASSEMBLY
Alaskans for Open Meetings is a grassroots group which is raising funds to file suit against the Anchorage Assembly for violating the Open Meetings Act. On Oct. 6 they are holding a Q&A at LaMex Restaurant in Anchorage (8330 King St.) from 5-7:30 p.m. Special guest will be Craig Campbell, former chair of the Anchorage Assembly. Alaskans for Open Meetings is seeking to vacate all decisions by the Anchorage Assembly that were made while the public was banned from participating in-person. This includes the decision to acquire various properties in Anchorage for housing, treating and rehabbing the homeless, the establishment of an “equity officer” to carry out Mayor Berkowitz’s liberal social agenda and any other ordinances passed by the Assembly while the public was barred from participating in person.
