Board of Trustees Accepts Applications for Vacant Seat

September 28, 2015

The St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees is now accepting applications for an interim trustee to fill a Subdistrict 1 vacancy.

Subdistrict 1 includes the following school districts: Clayton, Ferguson-Florissant, Hazelwood, Jennings, Ladue, Normandy, Pattonville, Ritenour, Riverview Gardens, University City, and Wellston.

The seat was previously held by Theodis Brown Sr., who resigned his seat on Sunday, Sept. 27, while in the second year of his six-year term.

Applications must be sent to Chancellor Jeff L. Pittman, Ph.D., at the Joseph P. Cosand Center, 300 S. Broadway, St. Louis, Mo., 63102, by Tuesday, Oct. 27. The declaration of candidacy form can be obtained by calling the board secretary at 314-539-5154.

Applicants must submit a declaration of candidacy that includes the following information:

  • Applicant’s full name, home address, and date of birth
  • The length of time the applicant has resided in the district and subdistrict
  • A statement that the applicant has been a resident taxpayer of the subdistrict for at least one year
  • A statement of reason for seeking the appointment
  • A resume and any other information the applicant believes the current board would find helpful
  • A statement by the applicant that, if elected, the applicant will qualify for office

The remaining trustees will appoint one person from the list of applicants by majority vote to fill the vacancy until the next election held by the Junior College District of St. Louis-St. Louis County, scheduled for April 5, 2016. A trustee will then be elected for the remainder of the six-year term, which expires in 2020. At that time, an election will take place to fill the seat for a full six-year term.
 
If no applicant is appointed, the board will continue to accept applications and conduct interviews until the vacancy is filled.
