The filing deadline for local elections has passed, and there are seven candidates for three Kodiak Island Borough Assembly seats and four candidates for two Kodiak City Council seats.

The filing deadline for both city and borough elections was Friday at 4:30 p.m.

For the city council, incumbents Terry Haines and Randall Bishop have signed up as well as David Haught and Marine Leist.

For the borough assembly, incumbents Dave Kaplan and Tuck Bonney have signed up. Incumbent Mel Stephens chose not to run again. The other five candidates are Larry LeDoux, Brenda Schwantes, Dan Rohrer, Rebecca Skinner and Jascha Zbitnoff.

For the two school board seats up for re-election incumbents Katie Oliver and Jeffrey Stewart both signed up as well as Duncan Fields.

The Fire Protection Area No. 1 Board has two candidates, Richard Carstens and Scott Arndt, signed up for two available seats. The Womens Bay Service Area Board has three candidates, John Isador, David Heuman and George Lee, signed up for three seats.

Although those races are full, there are three races that will have fewer candidates than there are seats available.

The Service Area No. 1 Board has two candidates, Mike Sirofchuck and Scott Arndt, signed up for three seats. The Bay View Road and Monashka Bay Road service area boards do not have any candidates signed up. Those boards have one seat apiece up for re-election.

The municipal election for both borough and city offices is on Oct. 7.
