Filing opens for 3 positions on TCC’s board of trustees

Candidates interested in running for a spot on TCC’s board of trustees in districts 2, 6 and 7 can file through March 1.

A district map is available on the TCC website. Candidates must live within the particular district.

TCC trustees make decisions that directly affect the college, and students who live within the three districts can vote in the election, scheduled May 11.

NE Student Government Association president Annissa Mosher said voting is important, and she thinks students should take an interest in the election.

“It is exactly the type of election people should be involved in,” she said, “because it will affect us personally.”

Elections are held every two years in odd-numbered years, and the seven, single-member districts are reconfigured every 10 years after the census, board member O.K. Carter said in an email. This will be the first election since the districts were reconfigured.

“After each election, the board then elects its own officers,” he said.

Trustees Louise Appleman, Conrad Heede and Gwendolyn Morrison currently fill the seats up for re-election.
