District 4 trustee Marcelo Casillas, District 8 trustee Gary Beitzel and District 9 trustee James Rindfuss are up for re-election to six-year terms.
The nine-member board is composed of representatives of single-member districts. Casillas represents the southwest side of Bexar County, Beitzel the North Side and Rindfuss the Northeast Side.
Applicants must file by 5 p.m. Feb. 28 for the May 10 race by sending an application to 201 W. Sheridan, Suite B, San Antonio, Texas, 78204.
Rindfuss is the only candidate to file by Thursday, said board secretary Sandra Mora. Beitzel said via email Wednesday he will run for re-election. Casillas did not respond.
Incumbents must file an application and a statement indicating awareness of nepotism law. The law states that no officer may vote for any person related within the second degree through marriage or the third degree by blood to someone in a working position at the Alamo Colleges. Candidates must be registered voters and live in the district they represent.
The basement of the Bexar County Justice Center, 300 Dolorosa is the main early voting site. For a complete list of early voting sites, visit www.alamo.edu/uploadedFiles/District/About_Us/Trustees/pdf/ACCD-Order-Calling-Trustee-General-Election-2014-with-exhibits.pdf.
