Borough mayor election held January 11

by Sue Deyoe ~ December 7th, 2010

Campaign season is revving up for the Borough mayoral election.

Larry DeVilbiss  attended the Talkeetna Community Council meeting Monday night and encouraged everyone to vote on January 11th for Mat Su Borough mayor.  He said a low turnout is expected since no other items will be on the ballot and asked attendees to make it a higher turnout than the Borough is predicting.  Eight people are on the ballot. The top candidate must get at least 40% of the vote in order win. The possibility of a run off election is being planned and a second election date of February 8th is being considered.  Borough Clerk Lonnie McKechenie  says she hopes to have a brochure of candidates posted to their website next week.  A brochure will be mailed to voters by the end of the year.

In other council business Monday night, the Council put the Main Street Committee on hiatus for lack of business to be discussed.   The future of the Railroad committee is unknown and discussions will be held at the committee level to determine if the committee will continue.

A brief discussion was held on the Susitna Dam.  Cary Birdsall suggested that a forum or several forums be held where various experts could be called in to discuss the aspects of the dam and its future.
