A new candidate has filed to run for a three-year term on the Ketchikan School Board. That means there’s a full slate running for Ketchikan city and borough municipal offices.
On Tuesday Jordan Tabb submitted his paperwork to run for Ketchikan School Board. He and School Board Member Bridget Mattson are running for three-year terms on the board.
There are two, three-year seats open. Those are currently held by Mattson and Tom Heutte. Heutte withdrew his candidacy Monday, citing a conflicting personal commitment that would have prevented him from serving a full three years.
Currently, there are three candidates running for a one-year seat on the school board. They are incumbent Leslie Becker, Hilary Kvasnikoff, and Paul Robbins, Jr.
Two candidates are vying for borough mayor. They are Borough Assembly Member Rodney Dial and Sidney Hartley.
Due to term limits, Borough Mayor David Landis is unable to run for that office. Instead, Landis is running for Borough Assembly, along with Austin Otos. There are two, three-year terms open on Borough Assembly.
On the city side, incumbents Lew Williams III and Judy Zenge have filed to retain their seats on the Ketchikan City Council. There are two, three-year seats open on the council.
There is still time to file for municipal office. The deadline is noon on Monday, August 26th.
Municipal elections are Tuesday, October 1st.
