It’s official: City certifies its by-mail election results

Elected official that is.

It’s official —the results of the city’s first by-mail election have been certified, City and Borough of Juneau announced.

There were no surprises revealed by the work of the Canvass Review Board, which worked Tuesday to certify the results. As indicated by previously released unofficial results, the newly elected Assembly members are Maria Gladziszewski, Alicia Hughes-Skandijs and Christine Woll. Gladziszewski won an areawide seat in an uncontested race, Hughes-Skandijs won a race against Kenny Solomon-Gross for reelection to her District 1 seat and Woll won a four-way race for a District 2 seat. All were elected to three-year terms.

Board of Education Members Brian Holst and Martin Stepetin Sr. were each also elected to three-yea terms. Holst and Stepetin were the sole candidates for two open seats on the school board.

The newly elected Juneau School District Board of Education members will be sworn into office at a meeting to be held at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 21, according to a news release from the city clerk’s office.

Woll will be sworn in during an Assembly reorganization meeting at 7 p.m., on Monday, Oct. 26, according to the clerk’s office. At that same meeting, the Assembly will recognize outgoing Assembly member Rob Edwardson who has concluded a three-year term of service in the District 2 seat on the Assembly as of Tuesday.

The official results shared Tuesday were extremely similar to the figures shared in the previous round of unofficial results.

There was a voter turnout of 42.7% of registered voters in Juneau. It’s the first municipal election to top 40% turnout since 2000 , according to city data.

In District 1, Hughes-Skandijs received 6,368 votes to Solomon-Gross’ 5,065.

In District 2, Woll received 5,133 votes, Robert Shoemake received 3,044 votes, Derek Dzinich received 1,874 votes and Lacey Derr received 1,025 votes.

A ballot proposition to establish a charter commission overwhelmingly failed with 7,448 no votes to 3,969 yes notes.

A proposition approving a $15 million bond package for public projects, including school roof repairs, passed by over 2,000 votes —6,938-4,675.
