Two seats are up for election on Wrangell’s Port Commission. And with just two candidates, it’s an uncontested race.

Incumbent Port Commissioner John Yeager is running for re-election. Yeager is a sportfishing guide and commercial fisherman.

Teacher and commercial fisherman Winston Davies is also running for a seat on the Port Commission. Newcomer Davies will replace commissioner Frank Roppel, who did not file to run for re-election.

Due to scheduling conflicts, KSTK was unable to hold a candidate forum with the Port Commission candidates.

For more information about the candidates’ priorities, read the Wrangell Sentinel’s articles on Winston Davies and John Yeager.
