Planned resignation means opening of District 1 Assembly seat

Assemblymember Jesse Kiehl was recently elected to the State Senate Seat for District Q and will be taking office in January 2019. In anticipation of his resignation from the District 1 City and Borough of Juneau Assembly seat, the Assembly will be accepting Letters of Interest and Declaration of Candidacy forms beginning November 30, 2018 through close of business on January 2, 2019. While it is unusual to announce the anticipated resignation of an Assembly member, the goal is to advise the public in a manner that allows ample time for citizens to consider serving on the Assembly.

Residents eligible for the District 1 seat must live in Downtown Juneau, Douglas, North Douglas, Lemon Creek or the Airport area.  If you have questions about which Assembly District you reside in, please contact the Clerk’s Office to confirm your eligibility!

Per the CBJ Code 11.10.040(a), the appointed candidate will serve “until the next regularly scheduled election” in October of 2019, at which time the District 1 seat will be placed on the municipal ballot for the remaining year of the term.

The Declaration of Candidacy forms are available by clicking here or in hardcopy at the Municipal Clerk’s office. In addition to the requirement to file a Declaration of Candidacy form and Letter of Interest, the person appointed to the District 1 Assembly seat will be required to file an Alaska Public Offices Commission Public Official Financial Disclosure Statement within 30 days of taking office.
