During a special meeting Thursday, Nov. 15 the Board of Trustees narrowed candidates for the vacant position from 25 applicants to five to be interviewed.
Those selected include Michael Sharpe, Douglas Wood, Michael Lally, David Lindstrom and Brent McCune. These applicants will be interviewed at an additional special meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 in the Hugh Speer Board Room (GEB 137).
The vacant position came about when the Board approved the resignation of Don Weiss at their October monthly meeting.
Prior to roll call votes for each candidate, some of the trustees disclosed prior knowledge or contact with them. Trustees Greg Musil, Stephanie Sharp, and Jerry Cook all cited prior relations with McCune and Lally. All three trustees voted in favor of both candidates.
Cook also mentioned and voted in favor of Lindstrom. Musil mentioned candidate Radd Way, who did not make the cut. None of the trustees abstained from any of the votes.
The interviews Saturday will follow a previously scheduled Board retreat, beginning at 8 a.m.
