3 apply to fill vacant Ketchikan City Council seat

KETCHIKAN — Three people have applied to fill a seat recently vacated on the Ketchikan City Council.

The Ketchikan Daily News says the three candidates — Dick Coose, Jacquie Meck and Mickey Robbins — also were candidates to fill the initial vacancy created by the November departure of Sam Bergeron.

Bergeron’s replacement, Russell Wodehouse, resigned Dec. 19, just days after other members learned he had been fired and his teaching certificate revoked in Washington state after a sexual misconduct investigation. Wodehouse denies the allegations.

City Clerk Katy Suiter says another original applicant, Tyrell Rettke, declined to be reconsidered.

Coose, Meck and Robbins are expected to attend the Jan. 9 council meeting, where one of them will be selected.
