Anchorage voters send mixed message

- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Voters sent a mixed message to the members of the Anchorage Assembly and Mayor Dan Sullivan in Tuesday's city election. One of the more interesting races was too close to call Wednesday. Nick Moe ran as a write-in candidate against Assembly chairman Ernie Hall, who has been under criticism from unions and others for his support of the mayor's rewrite of the city labor laws. Hall at last check had a very narrow lead over write-in votes. Six of the 11 Assembly seats were on the ballot. In Eagle River, the mayor's choice, Amy Dembrowski, won the seat vacated by Debbie Ossiander. But in two other races, candidates aligned with Sullivan lost. In West Anchorage, Tim Steele defeated Cheryl Frasca. In Midtown, Dick Traini kept his seat.
