Ken Castner will be Homer’s next mayor. Castner officially came in with 53 percent of the vote, defeating his opponent David Lewis, who garnered 46 percent of the vote.
Castner did not run on any particular issues, saying his goal was to help the council come to an agreement on policies. Lewis supported a plastic bag ban in his run for mayor and making Homer more accessible. He also promoted more advertising of Homer as a four-season destination.
