Special June Election Needed to Fill
Mayor Menard's Seat
MAT-SU – An ordinance calling for a Special Election on June 2 will be introduced at a special
meeting on March 10 at 3 p.m. and a public hearing will be held on the matter on March 17 at
the regular meeting.
Deputy Mayor Lynne Woods is performing mayoral duties at the Matanuska-Susitna Borough
as the Deputy Mayor. Mayor Curtis D. Menard passed away Tuesday morning.
If the day the vacancy occurred is more than six months from a regular election,
State statute requires a special election to be held to fill the mayoral seat.
In 2006, the cost of a special election on school bonds was about $72,000. For more
information call Public Affairs Director Patty Sullivan 745-9577 or Borough Clerk Lonnie
McKechnie at 745-9685.
