Five apply for three seats on Gateway board

Five candidates have applied for the three Gateway Technical College Board seats up for appointment, including three seeking re-appointment.

Current board members Rebecca Vail (Lake Geneva); Ronald Frederick (Kenosha); and Ronald Jandura (Burlington) are seeking re-appointment. R. Scott Pierce (Kenosha) and Roger Zacharias (Kenosha) are candidates, as well.

Appointments begin July 1 and end June 30, 2012.

Peter L. Hansen, chairperson of the Racine County Board of Supervisors and chairperson of the Appointment Committee for the Gateway Technical College District Board, said the appointment committee will meet at 5 p.m. on April 29 in Room 100 at Gateway’s Burlington Center, 496 McCanna Parkway, Burlington. The committee will hold a public hearing on the nominations, review the plan for representation and begin the appointment process.

One open seat is for an employee; one for an employer and one for a school district administrator -- a district-wide seat. In addition, one member must come from Kenosha County and one from Walworth.

  1. Let's have elections by the voters in the spring elections instead of appointments by the men and women in the backrooms. This is taxation without representation.
