Runoff election to be scheduled
With 99% of the ballots counted in yesterday’s municipal election, Ethan Berkowitz has a wide lead in the Anchorage mayor’s race. He took 37% of the vote. Amy Demboski came in second with 24 percent, Andrew Halcro in third with 22%, and Dan Coffey in fourth with 15% of the votes. Forty-five percent of the ballots cast is needed to win, so a runoff election between Berkowitz and Dembosky will be scheduled.
