After watching his first unqualified pick to head the Anchorage Public Library system get voted down by the Anchorage Assembly last Tuesday, Anchorage Mayor David Bronson has tapped another unqualified and controversial figure to do the six-figure job — Judy Norton Eledge.
Last evening’s assembly meeting was off the rails, but not because anyone burned a mask at the podium…that happened earlier this year. Instead, things were relatively quiet for most of the evening until debate began on Sami Graham, Mayor Bronson’s choice to run the Anchorage Public Library.
Last month, I wrote about Sami Graham, Mayor Bronson’s pick to serve as Anchorage’s head librarian. The piece directly focused on Graham’s lack of educational background or work experience related to public libraries.
