By Kyle R. Cotton
By 5 p.m. Feb. 19, 11 candidates had filed for one of four trustee seats open on the May 7 ballot.
The Alamo College’s board of trustees serves as the policy maker for the five colleges across the county.
By early afternoon Feb. 17 only the four incumbents had filed.
District 1 candidates include incumbent Joe Alderete and artist Juan Hernandez Jr., 64.
In District 2, incumbent Denver McClendon will have to fight off three educators in Instructor Paul Marcus Deadrick, 45; retired educator Viviana Valdez Sandoval, 65; and teacher Elmo Murry Aycock III, 39.
In District 3, incumbent Anna Bustamante, development consultant Anthony John Alcoser, 34, and National Guardsman Joschua Kristofer Harvey-Beres, 28, will run.
In District 4, incumbent Marcelo Casillas, and educator Phillip “Felipe” Vargas, 38 will face-off.
Casillas was appointed when Albert Herrera, former District 4 trustee, resigned March 18, 2015. Herrera was elected in May 2014.
The winner of the District 4 race will serve the remainder of Herrera’s term, which ends in 2020. Visit Alamo.edu/board/elections or call board liaison Sandra Mora at 210-485-0030.
