Wednesday, 07 October 2009

            The Borough Clerk's Office sent out a notice this morning showing there are 197 absentee ballots, 126 questioned ballots, and seven ballots cast by a personal representative for someone who otherwise couldn't make it to a polling place. That's a total of 330 outstanding ballots, however that number could grow once the number of questioned ballots from the villages and Chiniak are known. The canvassing of the election will be done next Wednesday.

            Overall, voter turnout was unofficially pegged at 27 percent, with about 2,606 people - out of 9,649 registered voters - casting a ballot.

Unionization Code Change, Whiddon-Woodruff Race, Too Close To Call
Tuesday, 06 October 2009

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

            Giving City of Kodiak workers the right to discuss unionization is hanging in the balance in an election that is too close to call. City Proposition 1, which would change city code to remove the roadblock to collective bargaining, currently is failing by a small handful of votes, with 409 NO, and 392 YES.

            The race between Jon Whiddon and Mike Woodruff for a one-year term on the council is also very close, and, according to City Clerk Debra Marlar, too close to call until the canvas of the election is done a week from today. Marlar said there are 141 questioned ballots still outstanding.

            Whiddon has 426 votes to Woodruff's 348. Both operate fish processing plants in Kodiak. Whiddon is a retired Coast Guard helicopter pilot and Woodruff is the son of the late Dave Woodruff, who served many years on the Kodiak City Council.

            The race for mayor is less close, though with 308, Charlie Davidson got more votes than most challengers do against incumbent Carolyn Floyd, who received 497.

            The two incumbents seeking re-election to three-year terms ran unopposed. Josie Rosales got 528 votes and Gabriel Saravia got 520.

High School Bond Leads After Tuesday Vote

            It looks like there will be an expanded and renovated high school in Kodiak's future. The bond measure to fund it is holding a moderate lead after yesterday's elections.

            Proposition 1, which would authorize the Kodiak Island Borough to sell up to 76-million-dollars in bonds to finance the expansion, reconstruction and renovation of Kodiak High School was passing by a margin of 167 votes. The unofficial tally shows 1,128 Yes votes to 961 No votes. However, there are 201 absentee ballots and an unknown number of questioned ballots still outstanding, which could swing the outcome.

            Meanwhile, Proposition 2, which would have authorized the sale of 12-point-5-million in additional bonds for renovation work on school and borough buildings, is failing with 1,091 No votes to 905 Yes votes, a margin of 186.

            Speaking of schools, the only two candidates for the board of education were incumbents, and both ran unopposed. Norm Wooten received 1,528 votes, and Petal Ruch received 1,404.

            On the Assembly, the two incumbents are comfortably ahead, though one is being challenged. Chris Lynch seems on her way to re-election with 1,105 votes, while fellow incumbent Jerrol Friend has 922. But just 114 votes behind him is challenger Dave King with 808 votes, well within the number of votes that have yet to be counted. Steve Branson has 681 votes. The top two vote-getters will be seated to three-year terms.

            The election will be certified after absentee and questioned ballots are counted.

Municipal Election Day
Tuesday, 06 October 2009

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

            This is Municipal Election Day on Kodiak Island. Polls opened at 7 a.m. and will remain open until 8 p.m.

            On the ballot for city residents is the race for Kodiak mayor, between incumbent Carolyn Floyd and challenger Charlie Davidson. Also in the city is a two-man race for a one-year city council seat between John Whiddon and Mike Woodruff. Two incumbents, Josie Rosales and Gabriel Saravia are running unopposed for re-election to a pair of three-year terms. There is one ballot initiative city voters will face: it is whether to change city code to remove the roadblock to union organization among city employees.

            On the borough ballot are two bonding questions regarding the school district. One is for maintenance of schools and the other is for construction of a new Kodiak High School.

            Incumbents Petal Ruch and Norm Wooten are running unopposed for re-election to the Kodiak Island Borough School Board.

            There are four candidates vying for two seats up for grabs on the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. Incumbents Jerrol Friend and Chris Lynch are being challenged by Dave King and Steve Branson.

            There are, as usual, many open seats on numerous service district boards, which vary depending on which part of town one votes in.

            KMXT will have updates tonight after the results start coming in.
