Two more Prince of Wales Island communities reported final election results Monday evening.
In Klawock, voters chose two City Council members. Janelle “Macaset” Friday came in first in a six-candidate field, winning a seat on the council. Leslie Isaacs came in second, securing the second open seat on the council. Isaacs edged out third-place Sampson Nickerson by 13 votes in the final tally.
The final count of absentee ballots also confirmed wins for Friday and Henrietta Kato in two unopposed school board races. Klawock’s City Council certified the results Monday.
Hydaburg voters chose the town’s mayor, two City Council members, and two members of the school board. Mayor Anthony Christianson was reelected, beating out challenger Thomas Morrison by fewer than 20 votes.
City Council Member Marvell Nix prevailed over challenger Vicki LeCornu by a four-to-one margin. Nix also won another term on the school board, besting Tony Bitoni by roughly 40 votes. And Marcella Grant beat Tony Stevens by a wide margin for the remaining seat on the school board. Hydaburg’s City Council certified the results Monday.
But one Hydaburg City Council race remains unresolved — no candidate got a majority of the votes for Seat 3. City officials say the top two finishers, Raymon Guthrie and Tony Stevens, will face off in a runoff election. The date of the runoff was not immediately available.
