One of Juneau’s most well known restaurateurs has filed paperwork with the state to run for a seat on the City and Borough Assembly in the Oct. 3 election.
Tracy LaBarge, who owns or co-owns businesses including Tracy’s Crab Shack, SALT Alaska, McGivney’s Sports Bar and Grill and also a new cannabis company THC Alaska, filed a letter of intent Friday with the Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) to run for a spot on the Assembly. She has not yet registered with the city to run.
The deadline to file with the city is 4:30 p.m. Monday. To register, candidates must file a Nominating Petition, signed by at least 25 registered voters, and a signed copy of the APOC’s Public Official Financial Disclosure statement.
LaBarge’s listed address on her APOC application puts her in District 1, where Jesse Kiehl is running for re-election. Assembly member Maria Gladziszewski is also running for re-election in the Areawide Assembly spot, and LaBarge could be running for that as well.
Voters must register 30 days before the election, at an address within the City and Borough of Juneau. Voters can register at the State Division of Elections’ Office, the Municipal Building downtown or any CBJ library. Registration applications are also online at www.elections.alaska.gov, and more information is at the CBJ website.
