Stogsdill set to begin fourth term

Posted: Monday, September 29, 2003

Running unopposed, Jim Stogsdill will begin his second decade on the Soldotna City Coun-cil following the Oct. 7 election.

Stogsdill, a retired Alaska State Trooper who now owns and operates his own fishing guide service, began his career in city government on the planning and zoning commission more than 10 years ago.

In 1993, he was appointed to fill the seat formerly held by Ken Lancaster after Lancaster became mayor. Now the city's longest-serving elected official, this year's election will see him begin his fourth full term on the council.

In addition to his council duties, Stogsdill also serves as the city's vice mayor and briefly served as the mayor when Lancaster was elected to the State House in 2000.

Stogsdill has lived in Alaska for 34 years, 19 of them in Soldotna. He is married to Alyson. The couple has a daughter, Holley.
