The latest candidate to file for local office is Scott Davis, also known as Sheen Davis. Davis turned in paperwork Tuesday to run for one of two three-year seats open on the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly.
Davis is the only candidate to file for Assembly so far. The two open seats are now held by Jim Van Horn and Todd Phillips. Phillips can’t run for re-election because of term limits.

Two additional three-year seats are open on the Ketchikan School Board. Those are now held by Ralph Beardsworth and Stephen Bradford.
On the city side, Julie Isom and George Lybrand are running for the one-year seat open on the Ketchikan City Council.
