With most of the absentee and questioned ballots counted, it looks like two candidates for the Anchorage Assembly will hold onto their leads.
According to unofficial results from the April 1 municipal election, Bill Evans beat his closest competitor Bruce Dougherty by just under 400 votes in the race for the South Anchorage Assembly seat
Preliminary results also show East Anchorage will soon have a new representative. Pete Peterson has beaten incumbent Adam Trombley by just over 380 votes.
The only issue still outstanding after Friday’s count is Proposition 3, which includes money to improve the Loussac Library. With just 30 ballots left uncounted Friday, unofficial results show the measure failing by eight votes.
The remaining ballots are expected to be counted before the election is certified on Tuesday, April 15 at the Anchorage Assembly meeting.
The Municipal Clerk’s Office finished counting absentee and questioned votes just before 10 p.m. Friday.
