The nomination process for candidates for the Black Hawk College board of trustees has begun. Starting today, petitions are available for three seats that'll be on the ballot next April. The board consists of 7 voting members from the college's nine county district in Western Illinois. And voters will fill positions now held by Donna Frye, who's finishing up a six-year term, and for Kylee Fox and John McCooley, who replaced two members who resigned. To become a candidate for trustee, you must:
- be at least 18 years old
- a US citizen
- a resident of the district for at least one year
- committed to Black Hawk College
- collect at least 50 signatures from registered voters in the district.
The circulation period does not begin until next Tuesday, September 23rd. Nominees can then file their completed petitions at the office of the chief financial officer, starting in mid-December. Election materials are available at the Black Hawk College Campuses in Moline and Galva.
