The Desert Community College District Board of Trustees voted at its regular April 21 meeting to appoint a representative, rather than hold a special election, to fill the Area 3 vacancy left by the resignation last month of Trustee Dr. Fred Jandt.
Members of the public who are interested in serving as the appointed Area 3 representative can submit applications for consideration. Full information on how to nominate or apply for the Area 3 seat are available on the Board of Trustees website at https://www.collegeofthedesert.edu/community/board-of-trustees. This seat is expected to be filled by May 26, 2023
The appointed representative will serve until the next regularly scheduled election for governing board members, which is November 5, 2024.
Trustee Jandt was first elected to the Board in 2016 and was re-elected in 2020, with his current term set to expire in 2024. He announced his resignation from the Board, effective March 31, 2023, for health reasons.
The Board of Trustees meetings are streamed live via the College of the Desert YouTube channel and can be watched here. More information about College of the Desert can be found at collegeofthedesert.edu.
