Assembly, school board candidates finalized for October municipal elections

Eight Assembly candidates will vie for three seats.

The City and Borough of Juneau Monday afternoon finalized the slate of verified candidates for the municipal election in October.

Three candidates stand for election for the two seats on the Juneau School District Board of Education, and eight total candidates stand for three different seats on the Assembly.

For the areawide seat on the Assembly, a three-year obligation, Maria Gładziszewski stands for reelection. In District 1, loosely defined as Douglas and downtown, two candidates seek election for a three-year term. Alicia Hughes-Skandijs, who was selected to replace Jesse Kiehl when he was elected to state senate and who was subsequently elected to the Assembly on her own for a one-year term will square off against Kenny Solomon-Gross.
