The House District 15 Republican primary race began as one of the most closely contested this year.
Incumbent Gabrielle LeDoux went from trailing challenger Aaron Weaver by three votes on the Aug. 21 election night to leading by more than 100 after the final tally. But there weren't a lot of ballots cast in the East Anchorage district. In fact, significantly fewer people voted there than in any of the neighboring districts.
Nevertheless, it is certainly a place with many voices. If you take a drive down Muldoon Road, you'll find all kinds of international cuisine -- from Asian to Mexican or Polynesian -- a representation of the diverse people that live there.
