There’s a lot happening on the local political front over the next few days and weeks, and it is imperative that conservative minded Alaskans mobilize and take decisive action.

Tonight, Sept. 29 at 6 p.m., the Anchorage Assembly is holding round two of a meeting to consider whether to impose a citywide mask mandate. And don’t forget the recall election for leftist Anchorage Assemblywoman Meg Zaletel.

Many other communities are holding local elections. Most are already underway thanks to mail in balloting. We published our candidate survey results for Mat-Su, Juneau, Kenai and Fairbanks. Click on the above links to read the results. They are telling.

While Alaska desperately needs to reform its election laws, we’re not there yet. In the meantime, we need to make every effort to elect public servants who will take up this cause and restore faith in our representative democracy. Time is literally running out.

Local politics are not typically the big-ticket items that draw voters to the polls, but they directly impact our daily lives. Now that we’ve identified the conservative candidates, it’s time to volunteer, pony up and rally them to victory.
