In the upcoming election voters need to consider what makes an effective trustee for Elgin Community College and which candidates will best serve in that capacity.
After careful consideration of all candidates there are three who clearly stand out from the rest. Art Sauceda, Rise' Jones and Clare Ollayos (Three for ECC) all have the right motivation to serve as trustees, are highly respected in the community and have outstanding credentials. They all bring skills and experience that would strengthen the board. And each candidate represents a different part of the diverse community that is served by District 509.
Serving on the ECC board requires the ability of a trustee to function as part of a team. Effective trusteeship occurs when trustees are able to make meaningful, well-informed, decisions. They must be able to participate in respectful discussions before the decision is made. I know that Art, Rise' and Clare have proved their ability to do that through other successful leadership positions in the community.
The board of trustees hired an outstanding president in David Sam to manage the college. His excellence in this capacity has been nationally recognized. The roll of a trustee for ECC is to make policy, not act as managers. Art Sauceda, Rise' Jones and Clare Ollayos understand what it takes to be effective trustees and will serve the students, faculty, college and community as effective members of the ECC board.
