Unalaska’s 2022 city council candidates forum: City Council Seat C and Seat D

On this year’s ballot for Unalaska’s Municipal Election, there are three city council seats up for grabs, including the seat for mayor.

Brenda Baker is challenging incumbent Darin Nicholson for Seat C; incumbent Daneen Looby is running unopposed for Seat D; and Vice Mayor Dennis Robinson is challenging incumbent Mayor Vince Tutiakoff Sr. for Seat A, which holds the office of mayor.

In this first part, Daneen Looby and Darin Nicholson discuss the cost of living, airfare, and the future of Unalaska. Brenda Baker was unable to attend due to a family emergency, but she provided a statement that was read during the time for closing statements.

Take a listen to this year’s forum above. You can find more information on the Oct. 4 election here.
