Kenai voters gave a resounding “Thanks, no thanks” to the Borough Assembly majority, which had passed a “mail in election” ordinance for the borough.
The move to mail-in elections was led by Assembly Chair Kelly Cooper, who is also running against Rep. Sarah Vance for House Seat 31.
Cooper and Assembly member Tyson Cox had said they were elected to make decisions like this for the people, and that they knew the will of the people.
Apparently that was not the case. Some 67 percent of voters on the Kenai Peninsula rejected the mail-in election that Cooper had ramrodded through with little public input.
