Unalaska's school board has a new look — and a new time slot.

Bob Cummings and Josh Good were sworn in last week as members of the Unalaska City School District's board of education.

Cummings replaced Frank Kelty, who retired from seat C after two terms, including the last as president. Good replaced seat D's Denise Rankin, having unseated her by 16 votes in the Oct. 4 election. Cummings and Good were both elected to three-year terms.

Ceremonies comprised a good chunk of Tuesday's meeting of the City Council.

Councilors, city staffers, and community members delivered the biggest honors to Mayor Frank Kelty and Councilor Roger Rowland, two longtime local politicians who didn't seek reelection this year.

"I've had a great run," said Kelty. "Unalaska will always be my home."

Unalaska has elected a new mayor. Vince Tutiakoff Sr. won the office in last week's municipal election, defeating current Vice Mayor Dennis Robinson by 22 votes.

"To the people who voted for me, I really appreciate their votes and confidence," said Tutiakoff. "And I'll do the best I can."

Vince Tutiakoff Sr. has defeated Dennis Robinson in the race for Unalaska's mayor by 22 votes. Meanwhile, Josh Good has unseated Denise Rankin at school board seat D by 16 votes.

Election officials determined those results Friday morning after canvassing 49 absentee and questioned ballots at City Hall. While 44 ballots were deemed valid, five were ruled unqualified due to a lack of voter registration or a registration outside of Unalaska.
