Alamo Colleges Board of Trustee candidates sound off on Chancellor Bruce Leslie's leadership style


However, the historic student trustee position didn’t go far enough for some candidates. Aside from the fact the student trustee cannot vote and is relegated to an advisory capacity, some felt the role needed to be expanded to five representatives, one for each college and that the appointed (not elected by the student body) position could turn into a lackey post for board members.

“Having only a singular trustee seems, well, negligent to the different views of all the schools. They should be voted in by students of the schools rather than appointed by the board. Otherwise, [the board] may just appoint someone that agrees with them on everything,” said Kingsbery.

Board of trustee responsibilities include approving the annual budget and student tuition, accepting admission and registration policies and evaluating recommendations concerning the appointment or dismissal of other administrators and faculty. Trustees also hold the power to evaluate the performance of the chancellor, approve substantive changes to the chancellor’s job description and to, “[E]nhance the public image of the Alamo Colleges.”

Elections take place Saturday, May 10.
