Governing Board to fill board member vacancy with appointment
CHULA VISTA – The Southwestern College Governing Board unanimously voted Wednesday to provisionally appoint a member to fill the board vacancy created by the resignation of William R. Stewart.
The Governing Board’s appointment for Seat No. 1 will last until the next regularly scheduled election for District Governing Board members, and will save an estimated $900,000 to $1 million by not ordering a stand-alone election.
The college will widely publicize the process to the community. Information on how to apply will be made available at www.swccd.edu as soon as the procedure is finalized. Prospective candidates will be reviewed and interviewed by members of the Governing Board. A final decision will be made with a majority vote at a public meeting specifically for the appointment.
