Sitka’s municipal election saw high voter turnout and definitive outcomes for two ballot propositions. The senior sales tax will be reinstated and Sitka bars will not be exempt from a statewide smoking ban. Both the Sitka Assembly and School Board will see new faces.
Our third and final election forum on Raven Radio this month shifted away from the people on the ballot to policies on the ballot - a question regarding the senior sales tax and a town-wide smoking ban in certain public places. KCAW hosted a 90-minute call in show for listeners, supporters, and critics of the ballot questions to air their views.
