Clackamas Community College's Board of Education is seeking applications through Oct. 1 of potential appointees to the position previously filled by Dave Hunt, who resigned on July 15 following his citation for commercial sexual solicitation.
CCC's seven board members are elected to four-year terms to represent each of the seven zones in the college's service district. The board oversees the development of programs and services, and the adoption of policies and budget to meet the needs of the college district.
During its July 28 regular meeting, the board adopted a process for appointing an interim director to replace Hunt.
"We expect the process to include a period for accepting applications — probably a period of around two months to ensure we have the time to attract diverse applicants — followed by the board's interviewing applicants. The board will then vote to select the interim director at its October meeting. If whoever the board appoints wants to keep the seat for the full term of office (which runs to mid-2025), the appointee will need to run to keep the seat," said Greg Chaimov, CCC Board chair.
Applications for the vacant position are being accepted until 5 p.m., Oct. 1. The new board member will take office upon appointment by the board and serve until June 30, 2023.
The appointed board member may run to fill the remaining two years of the term in the May 2023 election. Applicants must be registered voters who are not an employee of the college. The appointee must reside within CCC Zone 3 boundaries that include Gladstone, Jennings Lodge and parts of Oak Grove.
