On Tuesday night (10-10-17), the Sitka Assembly certified the results of last week's election, offered thanks to outgoing members, and swore in new members. They appointed Steven Eisenbeisz as Deputy Mayor and Bob Potrzuski as Deputy-Vice Mayor.
For the Assembly race, Richard Wein and Steven Eisenbeisz were both elected to three-year terms and Ben Miyasato to a one-year term. Sheila Finkenbinder is 72 votes behind Miyasato. 258 absentee votes must still be counted on Friday.
