On Monday December 9, Anchorage Superior Court denied former Homer City Councilmember Thomas Stroozas’ request that the court issue an injunction ordering the council to remove Storm Hansen-Cavasos from the Homer City Council pending resolution of his lawsuit.

Stroozas, represented by attorneys Thomas Amodio and Keri-Ann Baker, is suing the city and the city council asserting that Hansen-Cavasos was ineligible to run as a candidate because she did not meet Homer City Code's one-year residence requirement.

The Homer City Council on Monday voted to keep Storm Hansen-Cavasos on the council, finding that claims that she was not an eligible candidate for the seat because she was not a city resident for a year prior to the election were unfounded.

In a vote of 4-1, the council found that the preponderance of the evidence presented in the investigation supported Hansen-Cavasos’ claim that she was a resident of Homer for a year prior the election date.
