Two Haines men are wrapping up their campaigns for the District 5 House seat. The district includes about 25 Southeast and Prince William Sound communities and stretches from Metlakatla to Skagway to Cordova. It also includes Gustavus, Hoonah, Yakutat, Angoon, Kake, Craig, Klawock and Hydaburg. Incumbent Republican Representative Bill Thomas, a fisherman and former lobbyist, is running for re-election. He’s being challenged by Democrat Tim June, a fisherman and boat-builder.
