Ron Gillham

The central peninsula House District 30 seat is up for grabs. James Baisden, of Kenai, is running against Ron Gillham, of Soldotna. Gillham did not respond to an invitation to participate.

Voters in the Kenai-Soldotna area will have a handful of candidates to choose from this fall when deciding who they want to represent them in the state House of Representatives. One caveat: they’re all conservative, and three are running in the primary on Aug. 18.

District 30 is currently represented by Gary Knopp, a two-term representative from Kenai. He’s running for a third term, but Ron Gillham of Ridgeway, Kelly Wolf of Kenai, and James Baisden of Kenai have all stepped forward to challenge him. Gillham and Wolf are running as Republicans in the primary, while Baisden is running as a nonpartisan candidate in the general.

The race for Senate District O has been one of the more turbulent on the Peninsula this election season. Senator Peter Micciche narrowly won the Republican primary in August. That prompted his challenger, Ron Gillham to launch a write-in campaign. And now, with less than two weeks until election day, another write-in candidate has thrown her hat in.
