Slate Set for Local Elections

Jay Barrett/KMXT
The final candidate list for October’s municipal elections is set, after a flurry of filings made on Friday.
Joining Incumbents Terry Haines and Randy Bishop on the Kodiak City Council ballot will be Marnie Leist and David Haught. They are vying for a pair of three-year terms on the council. All seats are elected at-large, with the top two vote-getters being seated.
Two more names were added to the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly race, bringing the total to seven candidates seeking three positions. While incumbents Dave Kaplan and Tuck Bonney are seeking re-election, fellow Assemblyman Mel Stephens is not.
On the ballot with Kaplan and Bonney are Larry LeDoux, Brenda Schwantes, Dan Rohrer, Rebecca Skinner and Jascha Zbitnoff. Though the assembly represents the entire borough, all the candidates are from the greater Kodiak City area. All three terms are for three-years.
For the school board, there are three candidates for two open seats. Incumbent Katie Oliver is seeking re-election, and will be joined on the ballot by Jeff Stewart and Duncan Fields.
There are no candidates for the one seat on the Bay View OR Monashka Bay road service area boards.
There are full slates for the Womens Bay Service Area Board, with John Isadore, David Heuman and George Lee all but guaranteed a seat. It’s the same situation on the Fire Protection Number 1 Board, with two men, Richard Carstens and Scott Arndt, running for the two openings.
The Service Area Number 1 Board is a candidate short, with three seats available, but only two men running, Mike Sirofchuck and Scott Arndt.
The municipal election for all these positions will be on Tuesday, October 7th.
