Filing a letter of intent is typically the first step local politicians take when seeking elected office. Johnston's filing permits him to accept campaign contributions.
In the Alaska Public Offices Commission form letter, Johnson filled out a blank stating he intends to run for office in the "City of Wasilla 2011" election but did not declare an office. But, Stone & Company Entertainment confirmed to CNN on August 10 that it is actively shopping a show that will feature Johnston running for mayor.
"Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office," will feature the trials and tribulations of America's most famous teen dad as he enters the world of politics while continuing to dabble in Hollywood, the production company also confirmed.
The incumbent mayor, Verne Rupright, won a 2008 runoff election with 466 votes. He took a shot at Levi after news of "Loving Levi" broke.
"Well, it is a little early to declare. Usually most wait until the year the seat is up," current Wasilla Mayor Verne Rupright said in a statement. "But since I am nearly old enough to be Levi's grandfather I think it would be wise for him to get a high school diploma and keep his clothes on. The voters like that!"
