No big surprises on the first day candidates can file to run in Juneau’s October municipal election.
As expected, Merrill Sanford filed for mayor. Loren Jones filed for Assembly District 1, and Jerry Nankervis filed for District 2. Andi Story filed to run for school board. Paul Nowlin, who has announced his intention to run for the District 1 seat, hasn’t filed his paperwork yet, according to the city’s website.
Juneau voters will elect a Mayor, two Assembly members and three School Board members at the October 2nd Regular Municipal Election, all for three-year terms.
The filing period opened today and closes on August 13th.
Nominating petition forms are available in the Municipal Clerk’s office and online at the city’s website.
