    Dunbar backs 8th extension of emergency declaration in Anchorage – supports 70% vax goal

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    Anchorage mayoral candidate Forrest Dunbar joined the narrowest of majorities to pass the eighth extension of Anchorage’s declaration of emergency.

    The measure passed along a 6-4 vote, which will be the final time Assemblyman Dunbar votes on the issue before his May 11 mayoral runoff election against Dave Bronson.

    Unlike Dunbar, Bronson has promised to end all emergency orders which have been imposed on the city for more than a year now. Instead, he will trust individuals and businesses to make decisions on health protocols. Since neither of the two men gained 45% of the vote in the regular mayoral election, the question of who becomes the next mayor must be decided in a head-to-head runoff.

    If Dunbar wins, he will likely keep Anchorage under emergency orders and subsequent mandate post election. Like Acting Mayor Austin Quinn-Davidson, Dunbar agrees that mask mandates and other orders are “helpful for the economy.”

    He is also a firm supporter of Quinn-Davidson’s latest emergency order which requires 70% of Anchorage residents to get COVID shots before restrictions are eased. Dunbar offered the caveat that he might be willing to ease restrictions if other indicators look positive even if the city can’t convince 70% to submit to a vaccine.

    “Anchorage can do great things,” he said of the likelihood of achieving the acting mayor’s vaccine goal. “I actually do believe we’ll get to 70%.”

    In voting to extend the emergency declaration, despite a zero COVID deaths per week average in the city, Dunbar said he didn’t want to “snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.”

    He also took time to undercut the overwhelming opposition to the 70% goal by those who turned out for the April 13 Assembly meeting. He claimed that they were not representative of the city as a whole.

    Dunbar asserted that there are a “huge number of people who are not in this room who do support vaccinations.”

    1. Class Action law suit in the making worth MILLIONS how about it Anchorage business’s ? Michigan case will set state Precedence here also Michigan Supreme Court ruled 7-0 ALL Whitmer mandates UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!

    2. Dunbar is another Biden train wreck vehemently wanting to turn Anchorage into a Chinese state colony! Why would anyone support or even suggest continuing outlawing freedom of movement, free speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of assembly in the name of a virus while authoritian nations like Russia, China,, Belarus are enjoying more freedoms than your average citizen in the west?Belarus never implemented lockdowns, Russians have been very lax and China has been open for well over a year!

      • To quote a song, “They’re all like sheep” (or something like that) and, unfortunately, sheep only follow where they are lead; in this case by false narratives perpetrated by legacy media.

    3. A few stats for you I presented to the Assembly before Assemblyman Dunbar voted to extend the emergency proclamation for the 8th time.
      Deaths per 100,000…….
      Alaska ……..41/100K
      MatSu ……..34/100K
      Anchorage..56/100K
      People died in Anchorage with mandates at a 65% higher rate than in the MatSu without actual restrictions only recommendations.
      Please vote Bronson for Mayor and end this madness.

    4. If Bronson doesn’t get in we are outta this city. If a full year of leftist indoctrination, authoritarianism and clown government doesn’t inspire people even to vote to save themselves then me and my family aren’t safe here. C’mon Anchorage get your schitt together!

      • Why haven’t you left already? High property taxes(it affects rent too), woke schools and insane government. I had enough after COVID. I lived in midtown to fifteen years, I fought the good fight (even with the Recall Rivera effort before I left) but eventually the fight isn’t worth it anymore because you’re miserable. Move on, brother, join the freedom boroughs of sanity. Mail-in-balloting killed Anchorage when Berky took power.

        By the by, I am praying for Bronson to win. I don’t want my hometown to die; no one wants their hometown to die.
