Third Extension in ‘Expeditious’ Bronson for Mayor Complaint

Third Extension in ‘Expeditious’ Bronson for Mayor Complaint

ex·pe·di·tious/ˌekspəˈdiSHəs/ adjective: expeditious

  1. done with speed and efficiency.

A THIRD stipulation to waive deadlines has been issued by the Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) in the drawn-out, not so expeditious saga of Forrest Dunbar for Mayor vs. Bronson for Mayor.

In April, Dunbar’s campaign filed a complaint with APOC that raised allegations of sloppy and inaccurate accounting, deliberate obfuscation of campaign activity, and potentially tens of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions. 

Dunbar’s campaign also said in an April press release that Bronson might have “accidentally incriminated his campaign as having received tens of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions through the backdoor network that connects the Recall Rivera campaign and the dark-money Save Anchorage group.”

Bronson campaign counsel Stacey Stone previously gave APOC assurances that the campaign would clear up concerns raised in the complaint “expeditiously.” Stones assurances were made over three months ago, and yet, here’s a third waiver.

Anyway, APOC Staff’s report is now due on July 22, 2021. Bronson for Mayor response, if any, is due no later than August 2, 2021.

A very expeditious third waiver of stipulations (APOC)
