The deadline to enter Republican primaries around the state is just four months away, and in District 31, only one candidate has filed. 

The Chair of the Alaska Republican Party, Tuckerman Babcock, said Republicans are busy trying to enlist other people to run from the Homer area. 

“I have, and I know the local Republican Party activists in District 31 have been talking to lots of people about whether they will consider running," Babcock said. “We are very very focused on replacing Representative Paul Seaton.”

With a little over two weeks until Alaska’s Legislature returns to Juneau for its fourth special session, House Rep. Paul Seaton hosted a town hall in Homer Thursday. The Legislature is being called back to consider Gov. Bill Walker’s “head-tax” proposal. The measure would tax 1.5 percent of Alaskans’ income, but Seaton told Kenai Peninsula residents that he’s staying neutral on the proposal for now.
