JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage state Rep. Les Gara, who recently underwent surgery for what he called low-level prostate cancer, says he's filed for re-election.

Gara says his doctor has told him the cancer is gone.

In a statement late Tuesday, in which he declared his plans to run again, the Democrat says he likes working both for his community and to increase opportunity for all. He says he's strived to help citizens - not special interests - "control the course of this state's future."
