Anchorage city election workers Saturday certified the final tallies from the city’s April 7 election, setting up a runoff for the vacant mayor’s office and certifying the defeat of five of eight bond measures.

The May 5 mayoral runoff will pit Dan Sullivan, who fell less than 2% short of the 45% needed to win in the first round, against Eric Croft, who came in second with a bit less than 20% of the vote in the 15-candidate race, held to replace Mark Begich, who won a November election to the U.S. Senate.
