Dunne files for assembly

Homer resident William R. “Willy” Dunne has filed to run for the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly seat in District 9, South Peninsula. So far, Dunne is the only candidate to file for that seat. Because of term limits, District 9 assembly member Mako Haggerty cannot run for re-election.

Candidate filing periods opened earlier this month for Homer City Council seats and Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly, Board of Education and service area boards. The Homer filing period ends 5 p.m. Monday and the borough filing period ends at noon Monday.

In Homer, the seats of council members Beau Burgess and Francie Roberts are up for election. Last week Burgess filed to run for re-election. Now in her third term, Robert said she is not running for re-election. Robert “Bob” Howard is the other candidate so far in the council race. The top two candidates getting the most votes win election.

On the Board of Education, the District 8-Homer seat held by Liz Downing of Homer is up for election. No one has filed for election for that seat.

On the lower peninsula, other borough elections are for one 2-year seat and two 3-year seats on the Anchor Point Fire and Emergency Medical Service Area Board; two 3-year seats on the Kachemak Emergency Service Area Board, and three 3-year seats on the South Kenai Peninsula Hospital Service Area Board.
