Assembly to Certify KIB Election Results


Diana Gish/KMXT

On the borough ballot were two assembly seats, two school board seats, several board seats for service areas and two propositions.

The much talked about Proposition 1 for expansion and remodeling of Kodiak High School passed by a slim margin. 1,281 "yes" votes to 1,114 "no".

The second proposition was a vote for bond sales to finance maintenance of borough buildings. That measure was defeated by 248 votes.

Borough Manager Rick Gifford says that the defeat of that measure may put a strain on the borough budget.

When the assembly certifies the vote at tonight’s meeting, Chris Lynch and Jerrol Friend will be sworn in for second terms. Lynch won with 1,268 votes and Friend with 1,063. Also running for those seats were David King who received 928 votes and Steve Branson who received 774.

Norm Wooten and Petal Ruch ran unopposed and were re-elected to the school board for three more years.

There are 9,649 registered voters on Kodiak. Of that number, 2,480, or 25 per cent, voted in the October 6th election.

Anyone wishing to petition a recount has until Monday to do so.
