Liebelt will be running against incumbent Mary Becker for the District 1 seat.
Douglas resident Arnold Liebelt has announced his intent to run for the District 1 Assembly seat in the upcoming October 2016 City and Borough of Juneau municipal election.
Liebelt has lived in Juneau for 23 years, with much of that time working for the State of Alaska as a planner, project manager, and facilities supervisor for the Department of Health and Social Services. His most recent position was as a Senior Policy Analyst for the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget, working in both the Parnell and Walker administrations.
"Juneau is facing some precarious fiscal times, and we need people who can make thoughtful and difficult decisions to make sure our revenue continues to match our expenditures," said Liebelt. "This is something I've been interested in for a long time, watching the Assembly and the state of the fiscal economy. We enjoy an incredible quality of life here in Juneau, and I want to work really hard with the other Assembly members to maintain our quality of life."
Assembly member and former mayor Mary Becker is also running for District 1. Arnold says he filed his letter of intent to run on Monday
