A fourth candidate filed for the East Central College board of trustees election Friday morning.

David Hood, 1007 St. Andrews, Union, will challenge Ann Hartley of Union, incumbent from Subdistrict 2.

Hartley is completing a two-year unexpired term which she was elected to in 2012.

In Subdistrict 1, Gene Overhoff, Sullivan, will challenge Dr. Joseph Stroetker, Sullivan, who filed opening day.

Overhoff recently retired from his position as an operations technician at the college.

The terms of Hartley from Subdistrict 2 and Charlie Betz from Subdistrict 1 expire next April.

Declaration of candidacy forms must be filed in the president’s office, Room 254 in Buescher Hall on the ECC campus in Union, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

No filings will be accepted on Monday, Jan. 20, when the college will be closed to observe the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Filing closes Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 5 p.m.

The ECC board consists of six trustees, two each from three subdistricts of the college district. Trustees are elected at large, but a candidate must be a resident of the subdistrict he or she represents.
