Kodiak Borough Mayor Selby Will Not Run Again
The Kodiak Island Borough's longtime mayor is not seeking re-election.
KODIAK- The Kodiak Island Borough's longtime mayor is not seeking re-election.
Mayor Jerome Selby says that 24 years in the position is enough and he let pass last week's deadline for registering for municipal office.
Selby over nearly a quarter of a century helped develop the Kodiak Fisheries Research Center on Near Island and oversaw, fishing legislation, replacement of local schools, a new hospital and an extended care facility.
Municipal elections are scheduled for Oct. 1 and unless there's a write-in candidate, the next Kodiak Borough mayor will be former Assemblyman Jerrol Friend. He's running unopposed for the three-year term.
Assembly and school board seats are also on the ballot.
