elections

 

This week, the city of Soldotna will hold a special election for mayor on December 17th. The election comes a little more than three months after the unexpected death of former mayor Dr. Nels Anderson. Two candidates are in the race, former mayor Pete Sprague and Charlene Tautfest. They took on a range of local economic questions at a forum this week sponsored by the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce.

A vote to change how some local service area boards are put together was postponed at Tuesday night’s borough assembly meeting. The boards oversee everything from firefighting to hospitals to recreation and senior services to roads.

  With all precincts reporting shortly before 10 pm, municipal election results have mostly taken shape.

 

Three candidates are on the ballot for the borough assembly seat representing Nikiski. Joe Ross is a longtime North Roader who runs a gravel and topsoil business. He’s made one other run for public office and served on local service area boards. Jesse Bjorkman is a teacher at Nikiski Middle High School. On a recent episode of the Kenai Conversation, the two weighed in on the two ballot propositions voters will also decide in October.
