A second candidate has filed to run for the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly. Trevor Shaw, a current School Board member, turned in paperwork Wednesday for one of the two open seats.
He’ll join Scott Davis, also known as Sheen Davis, on the ballot. If Shaw does make it onto the Assembly, he would have to resign from the School Board.
Other candidates running for local office are Conan Steele, who seeks to retain his seat on the Ketchikan School Board. Steele is the only School Board candidate to file as of Wednesday afternoon.
Two more School Board seats are on the ballot this year. Those are now held by Ralph Beardsworth and Stephen Bradford.
Julie Isom and George Lybrand are running for a one-year seat open on the Ketchikan City Council.
And, three candidates are running for two three-year seats on the City Council. They are incumbent Bob Sivertsen, former Council Member Sam Bergeron and political newcomer Spencer Strassburg.
City Mayor Lew Williams III has filed for re-election. As of Wednesday, he was unopposed.
The filing period for Ketchikan city and borough elected offices closes this coming Tuesday.
