Municipal elections

Kenai Peninsula Borough

It's municipal election day in the Central Kenai Peninsula, and there are plenty of choices on the ballot.

Or not as many, depending on where you live.

For example, both Kenai Peninsula Borough Assemblymen Brent Hibbert and Kenn Carpenter, representing Districts 1 and 6 respectively, are running for reelection unopposed.

Willy Dunne is the only one of the three assemblymen with a challenger -- the Homer assemblyman faces Troy Jones in District 9.

Municipal elections are coming up Tuesday, and in the run-up to Oct. 2, KDLL has been bringing you conversations with candidates seeking office from the various jurisdictions. Wednesday on the Kenai Conversation, the three candidates for the Kenai City Council’s two open seats joined host Jay Barrett for an hourlong talk about the city’s future and their role in it.

In this excerpt, the three, incumbent Councilman Bob Molloy and challengers Teea Winger and Robert Peterkin II discuss the business environment in the city.

 

The filing window for residents interested in serving on local city councils, assemblys, and boards has opened. Candidate filing and nomination packets are available now until August 15 for those interested in running for office.

There are two seats available on the Kenai City Council and three on the Soldotna Council.
