The filing period to run for assembly and school board in the October election is officially over. Only the area-wide assembly seat is contested. It’s currently held by Johan Dybdahl, who can’t run again due to term limits.
Former school board president Bill Peters and Kate Troll, a former executive director of United Fishermen of Alaska, are running for the seat.
Mary Becker and Karen Crane are unopposed for the district 1 and 2 seats.
School board members Barbara Thurston and Lisa Worl are running for the two open seats.
The filing period may be over, but there’s still the option of running for elected office through a write-in campaign. A letter of intent must be submitted to the Municipal Clerk’s office by 4:30 p.m. on September 26.
