          While there was only one contested race on Kodiak Island during yesterday's municipal election, there were two closely-watched ballot propositions.

           The one that has attracted the most attention and advertising dollars was Proposition 2, authorizing the sale of $115-million in bonds to build a new Kodiak High School. It failed 1,260 to 821. The increase in property tax to pay for it was given as the main reason people voted against it.

           Proposition 1 would allow borough officials - that is assembly, school board, and planning and zoning members -  to go back to using the older, simpler forms for financial disclosure. It failed 1,070 to 985. The detail of the new, state-mandated forms - passed in the wake of the legislative corruption scandal - was called intrusive by some, and is widely believed to be the reason so few people filed for public office this year.

            The borough assembly had two candidates for a trio of three-years seats. Judy Fulp received 1,419 votes, while incumbent Sue Jeffrey had 1,329. There were 517 write-in votes, for the other seat. Dave Kaplan was the only declared write-in candidate, and likely got a plurality of those write-ins.

           On the school board, incumbents Peggy Rauwolf and Jeff Stephan had 1,458 and 1,305 votes, respectively, for the pair of three-years seats open. In the race for the one-year seat, there were only write-ins: Jana Turvey, Petal Ruch, and Jerry Lampl. There were 703 write-in votes cast in that race, but the borough clerk's office had to hand count those ballots and the results were not available Tuesday night.

            The two candidates for Kodiak City Council ran unopposed. Tom Walters had 624 votes and Paul Smith had 573.             Normal 0

            In the five service area elections there were 11 open seats, but only four declared candidates. In Fire Protection Area 1 Mike Dolph won re-election with 751 votes. There were 66 write-ins for the other two openings.

            There were no candidates for the Service Area 1 board, where three seats for three years were available, however there were 128 write-ins. Both Bay View Road and Monashka Bay Road service areas had a single seat open apiece, but no candidates. There were a handful of write-in votes in both areas.

            There were three candidates for the three open seats on the Women's Bay Service Area: Scott Griffin (144), John Isadore (143) and David Heuman (154), who all got in.
