Blinn orders trustee elections held on May 11
Routine actions mark the beginning of Blinn’s board of trustee election preparations
Blinn College took its first steps in preparation for the potential May board of trustees elections tonight during the board’s regularly-scheduled meeting.
The board adopted an order of election for: At-Large Position 1, held by Carolyn D. Miller, CPA;
At-Large Position 2, held by Atwood C. Kenjura; and At-Large Position #3, held by David Sommer. The window for election filing is Jan. 30-March 1, with election day slated for May 11.
The board also:
- Adopted a resolution combining polling locations with local government entities, an action that will allow Blinn to hold joint elections and share the expense with the Brenham and Burton independent school districts and the cities of Brenham and Burton.
- Authorized the administration to enter into an election services contract with Washington County for the May 11 election.
- Established that a drawing will be held at 7 p.m. on March 1 to determine the order in which names of candidates for the same position will appear on the ballot.
