But beyond the context of what this means for urbanism, Berkowitz's win represents a new hope for the city. What we just saw tonight is Anchorage redeeming itself after the very ugly fight over LGBT equality that played out in 2009 and once more in 2012 during the Sullivan administration. For a city that wishes to keep its young people and attract millennials from abroad, Anchorage was doing all the wrong things. But tonight the voters have spoken, and they have said that they've had enough of Sullivan's culture wars, Jerry Prevo's lies from the pulpit, and the Alaska Family Council's fear mongering. In Ethan Berkowitz, we are getting both an urban champion, and a champion for diversity and equality. Anchorage is once again open for business. Let's continue to transform this city.
