Three Candidates Vie for STLCC Board of Trustees Seat
January 22, 2013
Three candidates will vie for one seat on the St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees in the April 2 election.
Candidates for the Subdistrict 3 seat include Robert M. Johns, an information technology contractor with AT&T U-verse; Joan H. McGivney, former Southwestern Bell Corp. employee who was elected in April 2012 to serve the remainder of the unexpired term of Joan Ordinachev; and Allison Stenger, an attorney with Klar, Izsak and Stenger LLC.
The winner will serve a full six-year term.
Subdistrict 3 includes southern and southwest portions of St. Louis City and the Maplewood-Richmond Heights, Affton, Bayless, Brentwood, Kirkwood and Webster Groves school districts.
The STLCC Board of Trustees is a six-member board that represents the four subdistricts of the college service area. Subdistricts 1 and 4 are the two large subdistricts, each represented by two trustees. Subdistricts 2 and 3 are smaller, each represented by one trustee. District voters elect board members periodically for six-year terms.
The board is responsible for determining the policies of the college within the legal framework established by statutes of the state of Missouri. The board makes all final decisions concerning employment, termination of services, expenditure of funds, contracts, establishment of new programs, student fees, tax levies and construction of facilities. Regular board meetings are scheduled each month and are open to the public.
