Three three-year borough assembly seats are also opening up this fall. The terms of Assemblymen Mel Stephens, Tuck Bonney and Dave Kaplan will expire and the filing period for those positions also opens on Friday.
There will be two seats open on the Kodiak Island Board of Education, both for three year terms and a variety of service area board positions also opening up.
