LSCS voters select three board members

(May 9, 2010) – On Saturday, May 8, Lone Star College System voters went to the polling booths and selected board members to fill three positions on the LSCS Board of Trustees.

Two incumbents were re-elected and voters also elected a newcomer to the board.

David Vogt, incumbent, was re-elected as the trustee for Position 5. Bob Wolfe, the incumbent in Position 6, was also re-elected. And the new trustee for Position 7 is Linda S. Good. A total of 11 candidates were running for these three positions on the nine-member board and there were more than 9,800 voters.

“We’re pleased that so many have an interest in serving on this board,” said Dr. Richard Carpenter, LSCS chancellor. “We congratulate the winners in this election and I look forward to working with them.”

All nine seats on the board are at-large positions and terms are for six years, which are staggered – not all trustee seats are up for election at the same time. Board members serve as volunteers without pay.

Vogt, Position 5, was first elected to the board in 1997 and has served three terms. He has been board assistant secretary and vice chair. He is a civil engineer and lives in The Woodlands.

Wolfe, Position 6 incumbent, has been serving on the board for two years. He was elected in May 2008 to fill a then-unexpired term. He lives in the Cy-Fair area and is an attorney and CPA.

Good was elected for Position 7 over incumbent Richard Campbell who also ran. She is an attorney and lives in The Woodlands.

LSCS includes portions of Harris, Montgomery and San Jacinto counties so voting was held in all three as well as the Humble Independent School District, which is a separate voter administrator.
