Applicants hoping to fill the trustee seat vacated by Cortez Quinn in the Twin Rivers Unified School District have until 4 p.m. Dec. 2 to file paperwork.
Twin Rivers trustees on Tuesday voted unanimously to solicit applications for the Area 5 seat, which serves North Natomas and Robla. The appointee will serve the final two years of Quinn’s four-year term.
Quinn, 47, resigned last month after pleading no contest to a felony count of conspiracy to obstruct justice in a paternity case and two misdemeanors for illegally taking gifts and loans from a school district employee.
Board members will hold a Dec. 1 public forum at Regency Park Elementary School to hear what qualities residents would like to see in the new trustee. In a subsequent special meeting, the board will review applications and interview candidates in open session. Copies of applications will be made available to the public.
