Como-Pickton Consolidated Independent School District voters in May will elect two trustees to the school board, rather than three, thanks to two election changes the school board approved last spring. Those changes impacted the terms and years trustees are elected to the board.
The district voted to extend trustees’ terms from three years to four years. They also approved holding elections every two years, with the election to fall on odd numbered years. That will eventually mean three trustees elected one year and four trustees elected two years later, according to school elections official Lenise Boseman.
The board opted to begin extending terms to four years starting in May 2012, with the two terms due to expire in May 2012 extended to May 2013. Greg Anglin and Beth Hankins are currently serving in those seats. Thus, their seats are the only two on the ballot for the May 11 trustee election.
Candiate filing for the two seats on the board currently held by Anglin and Hankins opened Jan. 30 and will continue through March 1. As of Monday morning, no one had yet to file for either seat.
To file as a candidate for the two full term trustee seats on the school board or more information about the election, see Boseman in the business office weekdays through March 1 during regular business hours.
