CBJ election roundup


Voters rejected a proposed tax on plastic shopping bags, as well as a Juneau Assembly proposal to opt out of state financial disclosure reporting rules for public officials. Two school bond measures passed, as did an extension of the CBJ’s temporary three-percent sales tax.

Jesse Kiehl and Randy Wanamaker won seats on the CBJ Assembly. A third race is too close to call, with Carlton Smith holding a 53 vote lead over Loren Jones for an area wide seat, and Geny Del Rosario in distant third place.
