The Colorado Mountain College District is seeking candidates to run for three positions on its elected board of trustees. Each term is for four years.

Each potential candidate must be an eligible elector, as defined by state law, and reside within the boundaries of the trustee district in which they submit their petition to run. The three trustee districts with seats up for election are located within specified boundaries in Pitkin County (District 1), western Garfield County (District 3) and Eagle County (District 7). Interested residents may contact the college for the detailed boundary descriptions for trustee districts within any of the above counties.

Two incumbents, Glenn Davis of District 7 and Mary Ellen Denomy of District 3, are ineligible for re-election after serving two terms. Incumbent Charles Cunniffe of District 1 has not yet officially declared whether he will seek re-election.

Petitions are available from the college’s Central Services administration office in downtown Glenwood Springs starting Aug. 9. Petitions, including at least 50 qualifying signatures, must be returned to the college’s district administration office by 1 p.m. Sept. 1. The election will be held Nov. 7, 2017.
