Monday deadline for Carbondale trustee applicants

Staff Reporter

Monday is the deadline for Carbondalians to apply for the town’s Board of Trustees. The board plans to interview applicants during the regular meeting Tuesday.

The board has seen a bit of shuffling recently as former-Mayor Stacey Bernot stepped down in April and Trustee A.J. Hobbs has announced that he will soon resign.

This new trustee, whom the board has decided to appoint rather than send to the voters, will replace Hobbs on the board and would serve for the remainder of that term, which expires in 2018.

The mayor’s seat is also up for grabs, and the newly-elected Mayor Pro Tem Dan Richardson is running against former-Trustee Ed Cortez. Should Richardson be elected, his trustee position too will have to be filled.
