Bruce Dougherty, 54, is a retiree, Air Force Reserve veteran, and former nursing assistant at the Anchorage Pioneers' Home.

He previously worked as administrator of a retirement home in Washington State. Dougherty said the process on labor ordinance was flawed and that “AO-37 must be completely scrapped.”

“Negotiating contracts face-to-face at the bargaining table has always worked fine in the past and that’s what the city should go back to,” Dougherty said.

Dougherty is opposed by Bill Evans and Pete Nolan
