Gloria Gallagher was elected as a representative of the permanent staff to the Board of Trustees.
Gallagher will serve a three-year term, effective July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2017, and joins continuing staff representatives Mike Sawyer and Phil Nardangeli. She will take over from Geraldine Jones, who held the position the last three years.
Seven individuals ran in the election and over 350 ballots were received. The Board of Trustees noted the importance of having staff representation on the Board and said it is pleased to see such staff engagement in the process, both from those who stood in the election and those who voted.
There is an opportunity each year for the election of a permanent staff representative to fill one of the staggered, three-year term vacancies.
