pdf Full Borough Election Results 16/10/2014,11:05 140.77 Kb

    The Kodiak Island Borough municipal elections have been canvassed – meaning all outstanding votes have been added to the totals from the October 7th election.
    Provided by the borough clerk’s office, the results show that the election results were decided by less than 2,000 people. Only 1,968 votes were cast out of a registered voter pool of 9,100, meaning just 22 percent of eligible voters turned out. However, that is actually five more percentage points than last year, and nine more than 2012.
    The precinct with the lowest percentage of votes cast was Bell’s Flats, where only 11-percent, or 186 out of 1,711 voters, cast a ballot. The voters of Ouzinkie had the highest turnout, with 34 percent.
    The counting of questioned, absentee and personal representative ballots changed the final election numbers, but did not change who will be sworn in tonight.
    Dan Rohrer picked up another 168 votes for a total of 1,323. Larry LeDoux got another 164 votes to bring his total to 1,285; and Rebecca Skinner received another 124 votes for a total of 795.
    The final tally for the two school board seats have incumbent Katie Oliver with 1,319 votes and Duncan Fields with 1,268. Oliver picked up another 186 votes and Fields another 172.
    Proposition 1, which will allow the Kodiak Island Borough to issue bonds to conduct maintenance and repairs to borough schools, picked up another 173 votes in favor and 82 more votes against. It passed with almost two-to-one approval with a total of 1,216 yes and 630 no.
    The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will certify the election results, and the clerk will swear in the three new assembly members, tonight at the assembly’s regular meeting. We’ll carry that live on KMXT at 7:30

          Yesterday KMXT told you all about a new project for Kodiak High School and Middle School students, one that partners them with NASA scientists to try and forecast earthquakes.
           The work is being done through  Trillium Learning’s American Bridge Project, and brought the world’s first two Global Earthquake Forecasting System sensing platforms to Kodiak last month. One was placed on top of the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium, and another was sent to Old Harbor.
           The platforms collect electrical and magnetic signals, among other data, but also include a full NOAA-class weather station on each platform.
            “So we can tell how much wind, wind gusts, rain, humidity, temperature – all these things are actually being recorded.”   
             That’s Ron Fortunado, the president of Trillium Learning. He said the students working with the platform in Old Harbor went nuts when they learned about the weather stations included in the project, something he didn’t expect.
            “Because they don’t have a weather station down there.”
            Instead, Fortunado learned that Old Harbor relies on weather forecasts from Kodiak airport.
          “If they knew what the weather was like down here they would know whether or not to send a plane or not, or a maritime or fishing fleet – we would know better about what the conditions were and stuff like that. So with a weather station down there, localizing in a place based manner, now they’re going to use it to do all sorts of climate studies in their environmental science classes and things like that.”
            Fortunado said he had no idea how important and useful a weather station would be for the community of Old Harbor, and is glad the earthquake forecasting project can be beneficial in multiple ways.

          There’s a series of awards and declarations on the agenda for tonight’s Borough Assembly meeting. The governing body will acknowledge Coast Guard Appreciation Day and Fire Prevention Month, as well as honoring the employee of the quarter and administering a longevity award.
           Tonight’s meeting also marks the last for Assembly members Mel Stephens, Tuck Bonney, and Dave Kaplan. Stephens chose not run for re-election this year and Bonney and Kaplan failed to garner enough votes to retain their seats on the assembly.
            Instead, newly elected Dan Rohrer, Larry LeDoux and Rebecca Skinner will be sworn into office but won’t officially take their seats on the assembly until the next regular meeting on November 6.
            Tonight’s meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers and will be broadcast live on KMXT.
