Sitka’s municipal election is Tuesday, October 5th. There are 5 candidates on the ballot running for municipal office. There is a race for two open Sitka Assembly seats, and two seats are up for grabs on the Sitka School Board. Sitkans will also weigh in on Proposition 1: an advisory vote on the sale of the former Sitka Community Hospital building and property. 

To help voters make an informed decision, Raven Radio posed the same questions to the two groups of candidates and invited them to submit candidate statements. We’ll also host two on-air election forums – you’ll find video of the forums below, along with forums led by other community organizations, as they are published.
