Marianna Keil is back in a familiar role with the Seward City Council-even if it did come down to one ballot.

A longtime member of the Seward City Council, Keil was re-elected to serve as vice-mayor on Monday, October 23, by a 4-3 vote among council members. After reading three votes apiece for both Keil and Ristine Casagranda, Acting City Clerk Brenda Ballou revealed the final ballot was cast for Keil.

Keil was nominated for the vice-mayor role by councilwoman Sue McClure.

New councilwoman Suzi Towsley nominated Casagranda for the role, the No. 2 position on the council behind Mayor David Squires.

In addition to re-electing Keil as vice-mayor, the council filled a potential opening on the Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District by nominating McClure to assume the position currently held by Deborah Altermatt. Altermatt's position on KPEDD runs through December.

The council also voted to authorize Casagranda to attend the Alaska Municipal League conference in November.
