Municipal Election Day

Jay Barrett/KMXT

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.
