With three days until the deadline, Shari Coleman has added her name to Unalaska's municipal ballot.

The city councilor filed Monday to run for reelection at seat G.

Coleman won her seat last fall after ousting Rachelle Hatfield, who was appointed when Frank Kelty vacated the spot to become mayor in 2016.

Coleman is currently finishing the last year left on that term. If elected again, she'll earn her first full three-year term on the council.

With the deadline looming, only one Unalaskan has filed to run for local office this fall.

City Councilor Alejandro "Bong" Tungul is running for reelection at seat F.

Tungul was first appointed to the council in 2013.

Unalaska's local election isn't until the fall. But next month, island voters can weigh in on state and national races.

Alaska's primary election will decide who appears on the final ballot for governor, lieutenant governor, and U.S. Representative, as well as a slew of positions in the state legislature.

Unalaskans can now file to run for local office.

The candidacy period has opened for three seats that'll be on the municipal ballot come October. 

The two City Council spots are currently held by Alejandro "Bong" Tungul and Shari Coleman, while the school board post belongs to Tammy Fowler Pound.

As of July 23, no one had declared candidacy for any of the seats, which come with three-year terms.

What are Unalaska’s rules for posting campaign related signs around town? That was City Councilor Shari Coleman’s question and it sparked a heated discussion at last night’s council meeting.

“Should we allow signs on campaign signs to be displayed on city property?" Coleman wondered. "If so, let’s have something in writing as to how they should be placed.”
