Los Rios board vacancy to be filled in November election

By
From page A8 | March 21, 2014 |

The Los Rios Community College District’s Board of Trustees decided unanimously recently that voters in the Nov. 4 general election would fill the Area 3 board vacancy created by the passing of Trustee Terry Cochran.

Cochran, 74, who died on Feb. 14 from complications of sinus cancer, had represented Area 3 since he was first elected to the Los Rios Board in 1996.

Trustee Area 3 comprises the city of Folsom and most of El Dorado County. For a map of Area 3, please go to losrios.edu/lrc/map/tmap_area3.php.

The nomination period for the Nov.4 election is July 14 through Aug. 8. Those interested in running as candidates may pick up the necessary filing forms on or after July 14 at the Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections Office, 7000 65th Street, Suite A, Sacramento, CA 95823, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. To be eligible to run, a candidate must be a resident of Area 3 and be registered and qualified to vote in Area 3.

The deadline for candidates to file to run in the Nov. 4 general election is Aug. 8.

Whoever wins the Nov. 4 election will complete the remaining two years of what would have been Cochran’s fifth consecutive four-year term, which would have ended in 2016. That incumbent would then be eligible to run for reelection in 2016 to a full, four-year term. Each of the Los Rios board’s seven voting trustees are elected to serve four-year terms, while the non-voting student trustee serves a one-year term.
