Johnston files letter of intent to run for office in Wasilla

Posted: Tuesday, August 24, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Levi Johnston, the father of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's grandson, has filed papers to run for office in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, next year.

Johnston filed his letter of intent Friday with the Alaska Public Offices Commission, a first step needed to begin campaigning.

The letter doesn't specify an office though Johnston's manager, Tank Jones, has said Johnston's interested in a run for mayor or City Council. He did not immediately return a message Monday.

Earlier this month, Jones confirmed that Johnston planned to run for office as part of a reality TV show.

Johnston has had a prickly relationship with the Palin family since the birth of his son, Tripp. He and Bristol Palin recently broke off a short-lived engagement.

The filing was first reported by TMZ.com.
