This June Tulare country voters will decide the future of the College of the Sequioas in the mid-term election. The COS board of trustees, the governing board that makes all final decisions for the college administration, has two seats up for election. Both seats represent a single ward each and hold a large amount of control over the COS campus.

The two open seats are from ward 3, representing the Woodlake area, and ward 5, representing the Hanford area.

Ward 3 was vacated in the spring of 2018 when Earl Mann retired while ward 5 will be vacant in this upcoming election due to a surprise announcement that John Zumwalt will not run. Zumwalt is the outgoing Vice-President of the Board of Trustees and has served on the board since 1994.

The two candidates running for Ward 3 are V. Wayne Hardcastle and Ray Macareno while the two candidates running for Ward 5 are Alfred Benavides and John Leghn.

The Board of Trustees members are elected to four-year terms. The board decides the policies, annual budget, makes contract decisions and approves the curriculum for COS.

The Board has five seats and an additional seat that the Student Senate selects a member as a Student Trustee to serve on the board.

The current Board members are Greg Sherman(ward 1), Ken Nunes( ward2), Lori Cardoza( ward 4), the outgoing Vice-President John Zumwalt( ward 5), and Antonio Gutierrez ( Student Trustee).

    I can’t find anything online about who these people are or what their positions are. Maybe that can be a story?
