Familiar faces appointed to Council vacancies

The Sitka Tribal Council has appointed two members to seats vacated after last month’s closely-contested Tribal elections.

Former council members Harvey Kitka and Clara Gray have been appointed to serve out the terms of Dale Williams and Wade Martin. The pair resigned their council seats after Williams lost the race for Tribal Council chairman. Kitka and Gray each will serve one year, and then run for full terms if they choose.

Also returning to the Tribal Council for one year will be former chairman Woody Widmark. Widmark was appointed to the vacancy left by Archie Nielsen, who has stepped down for medical reasons.
