It was item No. 4 on the Travis Unified agenda Thursday: “Interview of applicant(s) and possible appointment to fill Area 1 (Travis Air Force Base) seat on the Travis USD governing board until the board election of November 8, 2016.”
The only thing was, no one showed up at the 5 p.m. special meeting to convince the board that they should be selected as the newest trustee for the 5,100-student Fairfield district.
“No one stepped forward to fill the vacancy,” a clearly disappointed John Dickerson said Friday. He is one of four trustees remaining on the board after the May 21 resignation of Dawn Kirby, who represented Area 1, the sprawling air base south of Vacaville.
