Leila Feldman was appointed by the HCC Board of Trustees in February to fill the seat that had been vacated by the resignation of Richard Schechter the month before. Feldman subsequently decided not to run for a full term this November, and has now submitted her resignation from the Board. That means that the Board is looking for a short term replacement for her.
The Board of Trustees publicly and formally invites qualified members of the public to apply to be considered for appointment to the position of HCC Trustee, District V.
The Board invites qualified members of the public to apply to be considered for appointment to the position of HCC Trustee, District V. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume in Microsoft word or PDF format via email to [email protected].

Applications may be submitted until 12:00 p.m. on Monday, September 30, 2013. Interested, qualified candidates should apply by submitting a cover letter and resume in Microsoft word or PDF format via email to [email protected]
Because HCC Trustee, District V, is currently on the November 5, 2013 ballot for election for a full, six year term, the Trustee appointed by the Board to fill the vacancy created by Trustee Feldman’s resignation will only be eligible to serve until December 31, 2013, as the newly elected Trustee will be sworn to serve shortly thereafter.
It is anticipated that the Board will appoint a qualified candidate as HCC Trustee, District V at a Board Meeting in October 2013. Please direct any questions to the Board Services Office at 713.718.8398 or [email protected].
There are three candidates for this seat in November, Phil Kunetka, Robert Glaser, and Roy Cormier. I presume they can apply to be the fill-in, but my guess is the Board will lean towards someone who is willing to be a temp. If that might be you, now you know what to do about it.
