Municipal election season is around the corner.

This fall, Kenai voters will pick two new representatives for the Kenai City Council, as well as a Kenai mayor.

Victoria Askin, Glenese Pettey and Alex Douthit are all running for Kenai City Council this year. Brain Gabriel and Teea Winger are candidates for Kenai mayor. All city council terms last three years. Municipal election day is Oct. 4.

We spoke with the candidates during a live candidate forum at the Soldotna Public Library on Aug. 29. Candidates answered questions about economic development in Kenai, their visions for the city and their strategies for reaching across the aisle.

This forum was the first in our candidate forum series in partnership with The Peninsula Clarion, with support from the Soldotna Public Library and the Central Peninsula League of Women Voters. For a full forum schedule, click here.
