Chickaloon’s Warren Keogh has turned in enough signatures to the state division of elections to secure a ballot spot for the Senate E seat. Keogh and his followers made the announcement Thursday in Wasilla. Keogh is running as an independent, and will face incumbent Republican Mike Dunleavy in the November election.
Keogh, who served on the Matanuska Susitna Borough Assembly, has a background as a firefighter, paramedic and a water resources specialist in Alaska. He has also served a president of the Chickaloon Community Council.
Senate E stretches from the Susitna Valley to Valdez, and includes areas to the North of Wasilla, and along the Glenn and Richardson Highways.
