Nomination forms for prospective board members have gone out to more than 300 members of the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce. Three seats are up for election. Longtime board member Mike Terry has served two consecutive three-year terms and cannot run again because of term limits. Fellow board member Jack Johnson has declined to run for re-election, while incumbent board member Bob Brodie has indicated his intention to run for another term.
That’s all according to the chamber’s Executive Director Trevor Brown who says it’s too early to tell whether the election will be contentious.
