When they meet in special session tonight, Travis Unified leaders will decide upon a process to fill the governing board’s Travis Air Force Base seat, which has been vacated by Dawn Kirby, who resigned May 27.
Trustees are expected to approve a timeline for a provisional appointment that will last through the regularly scheduled general election on Nov. 8, 2016. At that time, there will be an election to fill the seat for the remainder of Kirby’s original four-year term, which expires in December 2018.
The meeting’s agenda notes indicated that trustees will name two board members to serve as a subcommittee to review applicants’ eligibility.
