The field is crowded with candidates seeking to replace Denali Borough Mayor David Talerico, who resigned in December to become Chief of Staff for Alaska legislator Doug Isaacson. Seeking the seat are Clay Walker, Steve Jones, Tallon Shreeve, Rusty Lasell, Robert Kohlsdorf, and William Nemec. Walker, Lasell, and Kohlsdorf are all members of the Borough Assembly, with Walker acting as the interim Mayor. Nemec is a former Assembly member. Jones sits on the Planning Commission.
There will be a candidate forum on Wednesday, January 30 at 7:30pm at the Tri-Valley Community Library.
