Applicants sought for open-space board vacancy


Applications are being accepted for the vacant Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District board position caused by the death of longtime board member Mary Davey Oct. 2. The deadline to apply is Nov. 8.

Davey occupied the Ward 2 seat on the seven-member board, representing part of Palo Alto and all or part of Stanford, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Cupertino, Sunnyvale and a small portion of Santa Cruz County. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, a registered voter and reside within Ward 2, according to an announcement on the district's website,

The board is scheduled to appoint a replacement by Nov. 29.

There will actually be two openings for the Ward 2 seat: one for the one month remaining of Davey's existing term, ending on Jan. 2, 2011, and the second for a term beginning Jan. 3, 2011, and ending with the district's next general board election in November 2012. The board will decide in January whether to appoint a director or call a special election, according to Michelle Radcliff of the district staff.

Applications are available online or at the district offices at 330 Distel Circle, Los Altos.

Very little of Palo Alto and not much of Los Altos is actually in Ward 2.

Here is a link to the Ward 2 map: Web Link
