The APOC exemption means Paul Nowlin must limit fundraising and expenditures to $5,000 or less. His only opponent at this point, Loren Jones, does not plan to limit spending.

Paul Nowlin – a 35-year-old office manager at Petro Marine in Juneau – filed his letter of intent with the Alaska Public Offices Commission Monday. Nowlin says he wants to give back to the community where he grew up.
