Andi Story will seek a fourth term on the Juneau School Board.

The current board vice president filed a letter of intent with the Alaska Public Offices Commission today (Monday), signaling her intent to seek reelection.

Story has served on the board since 2003 and is the first candidate to file for one of three open seats that will be on the October municipal election ballot.

She’ll have to wait until August 3rd to make it official. That’s the first day candidates can file nominating petitions with the City Clerk’s office. The petitions are due no later than August 13th.

Three candidates have announced for Juneau Assembly – Loren Jones, Jerry Nankervis and Paul Nowlin. Former Assemblyman Merrill Sanford is running for mayor.
