STLCC Board of Trustees Seeks to Fill Interim Position

May 24, 2016

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

The seat was previously filled by Candace Gardner, who resigned May 19, 2016.

Applications must be sent to Chancellor Jeff Pittman at the Joseph P. Cosand Community College Center, 300 S. Broadway, by June 22, 2016. The board will review applications and interview candidates following the June 22 deadline.

Subdistrict 1, represented by two trustees, includes the following school districts: Hazelwood, Ferguson/Florissant, Riverview Gardens, Jennings, Pattonville, Ritenour, Normandy, University City, Clayton and Ladue.

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.

Declarations of candidacy must be notarized before they are submitted. Application packets are available in the office of the associate for board relations at the Joseph P. Cosand Community College Center, 300 S. Broadway.

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 St. Louis Community College, scheduled for April 2017.

A trustee will be elected for the remainder of the six-year term, which expires in April 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.

For more information, contact Rebecca Garrison, associate for board relations, at 314-539-5154.
