            There will be a new face on the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly after this fall's municipal elections. Long-time incumbent Pat Branson is not seeking re-election.

            Branson has served on the assembly for 12 years. Reached at the Anchorage airport, she said instead, she will be running for Kodiak City Council.

            Community leaders from around Alaska will be meeting in Kodiak this week to discuss common concerns and to set priorities for the coming year.

            The Alaska Municipal League-composed of 140 cities, boroughs, and unified municipalities-represents more than 97 percent of the state's residents.

            Borough Mayor Jerome Selby says the AML gives small towns which normally have one voice in state issues a chance to join with others to make a loud chorus that is hard for lawmakers to ignore.

            He says AML membership allows the borough to form coalitions with other similar towns-and with towns with similar concerns-to give them the oomph needed to get funds for things like roads and schools.

Interim Council Seat Application Deadline Today
Tuesday, 17 August 2010

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            City residents interested in filling the open seat on the City Council have until 5 p.m. today to submit their letter of intent.

            The City of Kodiak is looking for a qualified resident to temporarily fill the seat left vacant when former council member Paul Smith resigned. Smith moved to Eagle River to become the pastor of a church there.

            To qualify, a person must be 21 years old, a one-year city resident and a qualified registered voter.

            Applicants must submit a letter of interest and a list of qualifications. There is also a financial disclosure statement that must be submitted to the City Clerk by end-of-day today.

            The plan is to interview applicants at the August 24th council work session.

            The selected person will fill the seat until approximately the end of October. That will give the city's clerk's office time to certify the October election results and the "officially elected" person will fill the remainder of Smith's term on the council.

Last-Minute Filings Create Races for Mayor, Assembly, Schools
Tuesday, 17 August 2010

It looks like there will be some contests for most of the Kodiak Island Borough's elective offices this year. About an hour before the filing deadline Monday, the Kodiak Island Borough Clerk's Office sent out an updated list of candidates for the 13 open seats, and what was a rather barren field is now mostly filled with contenders. It was not a final list, which will be released later Tuesday.

Perhaps most significant is the entry into the Kodiak Island Borough mayor's race of former Assemblyman Tom Abell (able). He'll be facing off against long-time incumbent Jerome Selby.

There are now three candidates for the two assembly seats: incumbent Louise Stutes and challengers Carol Austerman and Scott Arndt.

  Former school board member Betty Odell is running again for the board of education, challenging incumbent Melissa Borton.

James Pickett is so far the only candidate for the Fire Protection Number One board seat open, while Dennis Symmons and Greg Spalinger are each seeking one of the two open seats on the Service Area Number One Board. Amanda Henderson and Jessica Horn are the only two candidates for the Women's Bay Road Service Area. The four open Bay View and Monashka Bay road service area seats still have no candidates.

All terms in all races are for three years. The clerk's office announced it would send out the final list of candidates around 9 Tuesday morning, so tune into the KMXT Midday Report for the final slate of candidates.

As of this Morning, Several Seats Unfilled
Monday, 16 August 2010

            The filing deadline for Kodiak Island Borough elective office is at 4:30 this afternoon, and plenty of seats, as of this morning, still have no candidates. The borough clerk's office expects a rush today, though, after a flurry of nominating packets were taken out late last week. The offices that so far do not have any candidates for them include the two borough assembly seats currently held by Pat Branson and Louise Stutes, and the school board sea held by Melissa Borton.

  In other elections, incumbent Jerome Selby is so far the only person running for the mayor's job. Jim Pickett is the only candidate for one seat on the Fire Protection Area One Board, while Amanda Henderson and Jessica Horn have filed for the two open seats on the Women's Bay Road Service Area Board. There are six service area board seats with no candidates - two each in the Service Area 1 Board, Bay View Road and the Monashka Bay Road service areas. Tune into tomorrow morning's newscast for the final tally of who is running for what in the Kodiak Island Borough.
