I've heard from several sources that former Alaska Director of Public Safety and recently defeated mayoral candidate Walt Monegan has declined to endorse either of the two finalists in the May Anchorage mayoral runoff election.
If Walt doesn't already know that will probably throw the election to Dan Sullivan, he should.
Monegan has claimed to be pro-union. Croft is a friend of what unions mean to the strength of Anchorage's middle class. Sullivan has not proven himself to be such a friend.
Monegan wanted to rebuild Alaska's approach to our having the worst American record when it comes to domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. Croft created and sponsored important milestone legislation, making it mandatory that victims of sexual abuse not be forced to pay for their own forensic examinations. Sullivan fought to continue licensing abuses granted to strip clubs for kids too young to drink.
Monegan, by letting Sullivan gain the upper hand in this runoff, disappoints me. I'm waiting on other Alaska bloggers to join me in calling for Walt Monegan to engage in this important election's conclusion.
