Filing Opens Dec. 13 for STLCC Board of Trustees Seats

November 21, 2011

Filing for the Subdistrict 1 and 3 seats on the St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees opens 8 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13. The seats currently are held by Margo G. McNeil and Joann L. Ordinachev, respectively. McNeil has served on the college’s board as the Subdistrict 1 representative since 2006 while Ordinachev, who resigned in October for personal reasons, was re-elected to a third term in 2007.

Filing for the two seats closes at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17. An election will take place April 3 to fill the seats. The winner of the Subdistrict 1 seat will serve a six-year term. The winner of the Subdistrict 3 seat will serve for the one-year balance of Ordinachev’s term, which expires in 2013.

A six-member board representing the four subdistricts of the college service area governs St. Louis Community College. Subdistrict 1 includes the following school districts: Hazelwood, Ferguson/Florissant, Riverview Gardens, Jennings, Pattonville, Ritenour, University City, Normandy, Clayton and Ladue. Subdistrict 3 includes southern and southwest portions of St. Louis City and the school districts of Maplewood-Richmond Heights, Affton, Bayless, Brentwood, Kirkwood and Webster Groves.

Individuals seeking the trustee seats must be at least 21 years of age and must be a resident voter of Subdistrict 1 or 3 for at least one year before the April 3 election. Each declaration of candidacy must be notarized before it is returned to the office of the associate for board relations at the Joseph P. Cosand Community College Center, 300 S. Broadway. Declarations of candidacy and a description of the subdistricts are available in the office of the associate for board relations at the Cosand Center. The office is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday; however, it will be closed Dec. 23-Jan. 3 and Jan. 16.

The placement of candidate’s names on the ballot shall be determined according to the order of filing by candidates, except that a lottery system will be used to place candidates' names on the ballot for those candidates who file prior to 5 p.m. Dec. 13. All candidates will be notified about the lottery and all other requirements for filing for office at the time they receive filing forms.
