Provided by DMC College Relations Office

The Del Mar College Board of Regents is holding a called meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 9 a.m. to interview the applicants for the District 1 Regent seat that became vacant after the passing of Regent Gabriel Rivas III last month.

The Board will interview the following applicants during the September 29 called meeting:

• Mr. Rudy Garza

• Mr. Leo A. Gonzalez

Due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic crisis, this meeting and the interviews will be conducted via video and/or teleconferencing from the Isensee Board Room in the Harvin Student Center on the East Campus (Ayers St. and Baldwin Blvd.). Members of the public will not be able to attend the meeting in person, but they will be able to view the meeting online or access by telephone.

Community members may access the meeting by going to the online video link at https://www.delmar.edu/webcast/ five minutes before the beginning of the called meeting. They may also call (toll-free) 1-877-568-4106 and enter Access Code 310-594-181 as early as 30 minutes before the meeting begins.

General and Agenda-related public comments may be provided at this meeting by calling the same toll-free number and using the same Access Code used for listening to the meeting.

Anyone wishing to make a public comment needs to dial-in between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. for the called meeting. They will register with a DMC staff member and provide their name and subject of their public comment, specifically if it is related to an Agenda item. After 8:45 a.m., public comment registration will close, and the DMC staff member monitoring the toll-free phone line will mute all callers on the line until the Public Comments portion of the meeting. At that time, registered callers will be unmuted and allowed three (3) minutes to make their comments.

Applicants were required to submit a letter of interest, their resume and up to five letters of support. Requirements also include that candidates are residents of Texas (at least one year) and District 1 of the Del Mar College District (at least six months) and be registered voters. The Del Mar College District includes all the area in the Calallen, Corpus Christi, Flour Bluff, Tuloso-Midway and West Oso Independent School Districts.

The applicant appointed by the Board to fill the District 1 seat will be sworn-in and take their seat at the Board’s October regular meeting on Oct. 13.

The Del Mar College Board of Regents includes nine regents in a modified single-member district configuration. Five Regents represent specific geographic districts, and four serve at-large.
