The Anchorage Assembly has once again postponed voting on a highly controversial proposal to give itself the authority to essentially impeach a duly elected mayor by a simple majority vote of the current 11-member body.

At the start of the June 7 meeting, Mayor Dave Bronson spoke to the proposal, which he views as a direct threat to office of the mayor. It was introduced by Assemblyman Christopher Constant, a vocal critic of the conservative mayor.

“Do you want to upend the balance of power in our city?” Bronson asked the Assembly. “Do you want to foment more discord and distrust among the public? As evidenced by the outcry of opposition to this ordinance, I firmly believe that Mr. Constant has gone too far with his proposal.”

He challenged the Assembly to consider whether they would back such a resolution if the roles were reversed, and the Assembly was controlled by conservatives while the mayor was “someone else.”

“I’m certain that even the idea of an ordinance like this would be frowned upon in that circumstance,” Bronson said. “No mayor – to include me or future mayors – should be subject to a coup by an assembly that doesn’t agree with him politically. I urge you to vote now on this politically motivated and partisan ordinance.”

Assemblywoman Jamie Allard unsuccessfully attempted to kill the proposal, but that vote failed 3-6 with conservative members Randy Sulte and Kevin Cross supporting Allard.

The Assembly’s next opportunity to vote on the proposal will be at its July 12 meeting.

    It seems like lawlessness continues in the Anchorage Assembly. Constant is trying to pull something so wrong. That is what Leftists do, they are Marxists that destroy anything they are involved in. As Elon Musk said, they hate everyone including themselves. They consider lies and deceptions a value. No other point of view is allowed except theirs. How can we contact them and phone them with our point of view?

    Watching the Assembly and seeing how LaFrench conducts herself.. I have ZERO trust in Anchorage’s Assembly.
    We obviously chose our Mayor, the assembly just thinks it knows better than the people.
    Socialism much miss lafrenchy?

  • nevergiveout says:

    Confused Comrade Constant is now pissing on our tree; selecting / deselecting a mayor is the power of the voters.
    It’s not Constant vs Bronson; it’s Constant vs the citizens of Anchorage via the destruction of balanced government.
    What will the audit show?

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      There’s piss everywhere you look in Anchorage what a cesspool of a city

    • Sharon Alice Turner says:

      Perhaps “Assemblyman” Constant has had the epiphany that his ‘enfant terrible’ antics as a mere childish ‘thorn’ in our Assembly, will disgust the same voters whose support he is courting in his bid to the ‘big time’ as a US House Representative ?

  • Lisa Levang says:

    what ‘s gonna come out soon is that the criminal trespasses are not legal… this is a public building and we have already established that with those who have gone to court over these meetings. The 3 rules are not being followed . AND the plot sickens as $$ still comes in thru illegal avenues. I believe they are holding onto their power because of the incoming ” climate migrants ” $$$

  • The Equalizer says:

    What a ridiculous way to show his communist views. He is a laughing stock to his district of voters. Try to vote that ridiculous ordinance in and see what the people of Anchorage will do. Politicians are nothing but corrupt ignoramuses that should be “Spanked!”

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      Anchorage will do nothings, all these leftist won there recalls.
      Yes I’m on Bronson side take these loser’s to court.

  • Jim says:

    Our duly elected mayor has the right to violate his oath of office if he wants. The ASS-embly should vote down this Communist Marxist ordinance!

  • Andy says:

    Communism draped with a USA flag.

    sorry for the additional post but CONSTANT PAIN needs this attention since he works for ” leader Pelosi ” as they call her/him. If he is a member of the bar association ( which most of them are ) how did he run for office to begin with? He wants to add this to his record that he ousted a conservative. The term bigot will be used over and over as the LEFTISTS are running out of cards to play. He may be unaware that Sleepy Joe signed some sort of document with the WEF ie Soro, Schwaab and other Super Villians who are coming to an end with their de – population tactics. He is also involved with HOTEL GATE .
