Kenai Conversation: HEA board elections

Apr 21, 2021

There’s a large slate of candidates running for the three open seats on the Homer Electric Association Board of Directors this year.

On the Central Kenai Peninsula, there are four candidates are running for the District 1 seat, to represent Kenai, Nikiski and part of Soldotna. They are Mike Chenault, Erik Hendrickson, Wayne Ogle and Joseph Ross.

Two candidates are on the ballot for District 2, which represents Soldotna, Sterling and Kasilof. Those candidates Ed Schmitt and Robert Wall.

On this week’s Kenai Conversion, we talked to all the candidates about their visions and what inspired them to run.

Ballots must be received by mail no later than 5 p.m. on May 5. HEA members can only vote for candidates in the districts in which they live.
