Final day of voting in a NIMBY-driven recall that’s become a political proxy fight up here in the northern wilds.

"participated in an Assembly meeting that may have had too many people present under a COVID-19 emergency order last year."

Oy....

Yup, their first effort at 'violating the open meetings act and illegally excluding the public from meetings' didn't stick, so why not go for the opposite.

I'm not a fan of recalls. Good luck.

In case there's anyone else who wasn't sure what this is about, I used the quote cbelt provided to track down an article on it:

Good luck to Mrs. Z! She can’t go wrong whether she wins or loses given the political climate and hate.

Safe to say we all lose as they work to make the climate increasingly toxic.

Fingers crossed for Mrs. Z. What little I could find online seemed to indicate that recall support came from the MAGA end of Anchorage political life.

When will you know?

Good initial count results, but still more ballots to be counted.

No recall: 5,702 ballots | 61.18%
Yes recall: 3,618 ballots | 38.82%

I expect it will tighten up a bit but would seem to be a hard hole for them to dig out of.

Yes, the MAGAites have metastasized into ‘Save Anchorage’ and various affiliated private groups on FB.

A ‘normal’ election cycle will see about 12,500 votes - I’m guessing down 5-10% due to the special election nature of it.

Similar numbers to that MAGA driven CA recall. Sounds like congrats are in order!

Congrats. Bummer that she had to deal with a recall but nice to see the money her opponents spent was for naught.
