There’s a new write-in candidate for Anchorage mayor. He promises to be everybody’s best friend, loves kissing babies, and basically anybody who rubs him the right way. In this dog-eat-dog world of paw-litics, it’s a candidate that can relate to the working man and the most elite of his future constituents. Meiko the Alaskan Malamute is vying for the top dog of the city of Anchorage in 2024. His campaign just began, and his headquarters are located right on East 5th Avenue between C and A Streets, so he’s very available to shake paws and elicit "awwwws" from his adoring fans. Not that it matters in politics but Meiko is quite the looker, with stunning pale blue eyes and a fur coat that is the envy of any Alaskan in the wintertime. His campaign manager, Robert "Ziggy" Zeigler says right up front tjat his candidate can be bought with treats and scratches. Gotta love his honesty in today’s world of "interesting" politics.
