Coverage

Welcome to KTOO’s municipal election page.

This year voters will cast ballots for three seats on the Juneau Assembly and two seats on the Juneau School Board. They’ll also decide whether the Assembly should be allowed to create an empowered board to manage the city’s two swimming pools.

We asked each candidate a set questions on a variety of municipal issues. You’ll find bios and their responses here, edited for length and clarity. Selected responses will air during Morning Edition on KTOO beginning Sept. 29.

We hope this site will guide and inform you as you undertake your civic duty this fall.

Should management of Juneau swimming pools change hands?

Juneau voters next week will decide whether management of the city’s two swimming pools can be shifted out from under the city’s Parks and Recreation department.

A proposition on the Oct. 7 municipal election ballot would allow the Juneau Assembly to appoint an empowered board to set budgets and raise revenue for the Augustus Brown Swimming Pool and Dimond Park Aquatic Center.

Municipal candidates speak out at Juneau Votes Forum

Areawide Assembly candidates Maria Gladziszewski, Norton Gregory, Tony Yorba; District 2 Assembly candidates David Fox, Joshua Warren, Debbie White; and school board candidate Brian Holst participated in a Juneau Votes Forum on September 17 at the University of Alaska Southeast.

Juneau Votes is a non-partisan community project that aims to increase voter registration, education and turnout. Panelists from The Juneau Empire and KTOO asked a combination of prepared and audience submitted questions that ranged from the city budget to the environment.
