In September, Paula DeLaiarro filed a complaint against the Independent Expenditure group “Open for Business Bronson,” which would later be renamed “Open for Business Anchorage.”
In two more Notices of Penalty Assessment sent to Anchorage Mayor David Bronson dated August 6, 2021, APOC wrote that the Bronson for Mayor campaign did not timely file two 24 Hour Reports during the 2021 Anchorage Municipal Election, earning the campaign two more penalties: $15,500 and $18,000.
I received more than a few emails about this in response to a post recently made to a Facebook page and posted to the Save Anchorage group, which interestingly only shared a portion of the Order.
The APOC Staff Report in Dunbar for Mayor v. Bronson for Mayor (BFM)tells a story. That story is either that then-candidate David Bronson either unknowingly enlisted quite possibly the worst campaign treasurer of all time or that his mayoral campaign flouted campaign finance regulations for the sake of winning an election no matter the cost.
