Filing Opens Dec. 13 for STLCC Board of Trustees Seats

Filing for the Subdistrict 1 and 2 seats on the St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees opened at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13.

The Subdistrict 1 seat is currently held by Derek Novel, who was appointed by the board following the resignation of Candace Gardner in 2016. The Subdistrict 2 seat is currently held by incumbent Hattie Jackson, who was elected to the board in 2011.

Filing for the two seats closes at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017. An election will take place April 4, 2017, to fill the seats. The winner of the Subdistrict 1 seat will serve a three-year term and the winner of the Subdistrict 2 seat will serve a six-year term.

St. Louis Community College is governed by six board members representing the four subdistricts of the college service area and one appointed board member.

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

Subdistrict 2’s approximate boundaries extend from the northern limits of St. Louis City south along the city limit to Oakland Avenue; southeast from Kingshighway along Park, 39th, Jefferson and Osage to Interstate 55 and Gasconade; east on Gasconade to the Mississippi River; and north along the river back to its starting point.

Individuals seeking the trustee seats must be at least 21 years of age and must be a resident voter of Subdistrict 1 or 2 for at least one year before the April 4 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 from Dec. 23, 2016, through Jan. 3, 2017.

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.
