Nikiski resident and lifelong Alaskan Tim O'Brien announced Wednesday he would be competing for the top spot in the Kenai Peninsula Borough in this October's election.
O'Brien, 58, joins a field of five other competitors jousting for the borough mayor's seat currently held by Dave Carey, who is not seeking re-election.
The other mayoral candidates include Dale Bagley and Fred Sturman, both of Soldotna, Debbie Brown of Kasilof, Gary Superman of Nikiski and Mike Navarre of Kenai. Ron Long, of Seward, recently dropped out of the race.
