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.

            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.

            The Monday afternoon session - titled "Everyone Needs a Business Plan" - will guide you through ways to strengthen your business plan by creating meaningful narratives that describe your business goals. It will help you establish budgets, plan strategies for marketing and give you techniques for evaluating your successes and failures. The business plan workshop costs $40.

            The instructor for the workshops is Bryan Zak who is the South West Regional Director of the Alaska Small Business Development Center. In addition to the Monday sessions, Zak will also be available on Tuesday for free client counseling.

            The workshops and business counseling will be held at the chamber of commerce building at the ferry dock. The deadline for sign-up is today (Friday).
