There will be no SWTJC Board of Trustees election this May.
At the end of the official filing period on Monday, March 5, only three candidates, Victor Lopez, Maria Elena Lara, and Anita Shackelford had filed for election.
Lopez is the incumbent in Place 1, Lara is the incumbent in Place 2 and Shackelford is the incumbent in Place 3. Lara has been a member of the board since 2005, Lopez was first elected in 2006 and Shackelford has been a trustee since 2007.
According to SWTJC officials, not having to hold the election will save the college approximately $100,000.
