Three incumbents are running unopposed for the three Board of Education seats up for election in 2015.
Liz Downing, representing Homer since 2005, Marty Anderson, representing Sterling and Funny River since 2003, and Tim Navarre, representing Kenai since 2009, have already signed up for the next three-year term. The municipal election is Oct. 6.
The trio independently cited the state’s fiscal crisis, or the “money, money, money,” as Downing said, and consequential need for experienced bodies who know how to advocate for education as their main reasons to reapply.
