Ballots for this fall’s municipal elections have been finalized, and most of the heated campaigning will be left for elections further up the political food chain.

We speak with Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Mike Navarre and his top aide, Larry Persily, about Tuesday's election, the upcoming run-off and their future plans.

It's municipal election day on the Kenai Peninsula, indeed in most of Alaska. Borough residents, depending on where they live, face a variety of choices on the ballot, however, everyone in the borough will be voting on who will be our new mayor. Three candidates are running: Dale Bagley, Linda Farnsworth Hutchings, and Charlie Pierce are all hoping for 50-percent-plus-one vote to avoid a costly run-off election between the top two vote-getters.

On this week's Conversation, we sit down with candidates for Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly District 2, Hal Smalley and Duane Bannock

This week, we talk with one of the candidates running for Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly in District 5 (Sterling/Funny River), Leslie Morton. The other candidate in the race, Norm Blakely, declined our interview to be a part of the program.

KDLL's election coverage continues this week as we speak with candidates for District 1, which encompasses much of the K-Beach corridor and parts of Kenai.

No one brings more borough government experience to the mayor’s race than Dale Bagley. He’s already served two terms as borough mayor, from 1999 to 2005.
