Shaylon Cochran


     Absentee and special ballots from last week’s Borough and Municipal elections have all been counted, settling the last two contests on the Kenai Peninsula.

     In the unofficial results released Monday, Kelly Wolf defeated Michael Winegarden for Assembly Seat 1 by just seven votes, winning 232-225.  

     The other cliffhanger was the race between Liz downing and Mike Illg for the Disctrict Eight School Board seat, won by Downing by ten votes, 524-514.

     The official results will be recognized by a resolution at Tuesday’s Borough Assembly meeting and new member Kelly Wolf will be sworn in at that time.
