Now that the only incumbent eligible for this fall’s municipal election has signaled that she’s out, another candidate is getting into the race.
As KTOO reported Friday, Assembly member Ruth Danner says she’s not seeking reelection to the Juneau Assembly.
A day later, former Juneau Police Officer Jerry Nankervis announced that he’ll run for the District 2 seat being vacated by Danner.
Nankervis was not available to comment, but said in a written statement that he’s excited about possibly re-entering public service. He retired from the Juneau Police Department last year after 24 years on the force, rising to the rank of Captain.
Other Juneau residents who’ve signaled their intentions to run in the October 2nd election include Loren Jones for Assembly and Merrill Sanford for Mayor.
The filing period opens August 3rd and closes ten days later.
