Skagway voters were nearly split on a $6 million bond measure that would cover the cost of a new Senior Center.

During Tuesday’s Municipal election, 180 voters were for the measure and 186 were against as the unofficial results were tallied.

The bond measure may raise property taxes making some voters hesitant.

Voters also weighed in on two open Assembly seats. The first goes to Orion Hanson with 205 votes, at the end of Election Day. Incumbent Timothy Cochran had 192 votes. While David Brena had 144 votes and there were 124 votes for write-in candidates.

The votes for school board ended with Jamie Bricker garnering 298 votes for a three-year term seat and Darren Belisle for a two-year term seat.

Mark Joseph Smith had 114 votes and write-in candidates had 3 votes.

This is only the preliminary result as all absentee, mail-in and challenged votes have not been tallied. The Skagway News will update the election results as new information becomes available. SA
