Ethan Berkowitz of Strategies 360 & Bernadette and Berkowitz Show fame will run for Mayor of Anchorage. His official announcement is tomorrow at 2:00pm at the Spenard Road House.
Berkowitz was a state house representative from 1996-2007 and Minority Leader from 1999-2007. He is known to be a dynamic fundraiser, skills he honed during his three unsuccessful campaigns for Lt. Governor (2006), Congress (2008) and Governor (2010).
The Anchorage mayoral race is won by a simply plurality of votes. With so many conservative candidates already in the race, they just might split the Right vote and give Berkowitz the win.
One question remains: will airtime restrictions force Berkowitz to take a leave of absence from his co-hosting responsibilities?
