S2:E10 - Anchorage, Boston, Elections and All Male Mayors The AnchorED City

    • Society & Culture

Anchorage, Boston, Elections and All Male Mayors


 


Anchorage and Boston don’t have a lot in common, but they do share one interesting overlap – a long history of only having male mayors. In this episode we consider Anchorage’s political history from its first vote in 1915 (to name the city) up to the most recent mayoral election.


 


 


#allpeople


All during this season of the AnchorEd City Podcast we are exploring places in the city where things are, or are becoming, more like they should be for all people.


 


During the months of September, October, and November we are partnering with Kaladi Brothers Coffee to hear from you about what would make Anchorage the way it is supposed to be for all people. Go to: AnchorageUTC.org/allpeople for participating locations and more info.


 


Can’t make it to a café?  No worries.
