Election of 1994:
Sheila “Chip” Delaney, who is now married and whose name is now Ehst, and David Gross filed for election. Since there were three positions open and only two people filed, they were considered elected. Their terms are for four years and will expire in 1998.
Susan Bardelli who had two years left on a four-year term resigned effective December 1994. A replacement will be appointed to fill the remainder of her two years.
James Stewart’s term expires in December 1994 and he did not seek re-election, so a replacement will also have to be appointed to fill his position. This appointment will also be for two years.
In January 1995 the Board appointed Dennis Carrillo to fill the remainder of Susan Bardelli’s term. This term will expire in December of 1996. When someone files for election to this position it will be for four years.

Election of 2000:
Charles Lawson, Paul O. Kyle and Ray McCutcheon filed for election. James “Gene” Parker did not. Since there were four seats vacant and only three filed, they were all considered elected. Their terms are for four years. Diane Gordon still had two years on her term.
In January 2001, the Board determined that since Diane Gordon had missed the last three meetings and had moved (temporarily?) from the area that she could no longer serve on the Board.

Paul O. Kyle resigned from the Board in April 2001. After interviews it was decided that Mel Earls would replace Paul. This term will expire in December 2002.
Election of 2002:
Three positions were open for election. Incumbents Mel Earls, Patrick McIntyre and Donald Schalla all filed to run as did Lori Cline.
Lori Cline, Mel Earls and Patrick McIntyre won. There is a question as to whether the election was illegal because people from outside the District boundaries were allowed to vote for the Trustees.
Lori Cline and Patrick McIntyre were the top vote getters, so they will have four-year terms. Their terms will expire in December of 2006. Mel Earls was elected to a two-year term expiring in December 2004.
Charles Lawson and Ray McCutcheon still have two years left on their terms. Those terms will expire in December 2004.
Lori Cline passed away in March of 2004, so in June of that year Judith Dillon was appointed to fill that vacancy until December 2004. Someone will need to be appointed for the remainder of Lori’s term (2 years) in January 2005, since no one filed to run for the vacant position.
ELECTION OF 2004:
Ray McCutcheon chose not to run for re-election, but Mel Earls and Charles Lawson filed for election. Donald Schalla filed to fill the 4-year term of Ray McCutcheon. Since there were four vacancies and only three people filed, they are all elected without being voted for. Mel Earls, Charles and Donald Schalla have 4-year terms that will end in December 2008.
At the regular board meeting held on January 12, 2005 the board appointed Judith Dillion to a 2-year term, which expires in December 2006.
Donald Schalla resigned from the Board effective June 6, 2005. On July 5, 2005 the remaining Board members appointed Sheila “Chip” Ehst to fill the vacant position. Chip’s appointment will end in December 2006, but the term itself does not expire until December 2008.
At the regular board meeting held on June 8th, 2006 the board accepted the resignation of Sheila “Chip” Ehst and appointed Gloria Crockett to fill Chip’s vacant seat. Gloria’s appointment will end in December 2006.
ELECTION OF 2006:
In January 2007 Gloria will fill her own seat, because she filed for election in 2006 uncontested, Gloria’s term will be for 4 years expiring in December 2008.
Pat McIntyre also filed for election in 2006 and since 3 positions were available (Gloria’s, his and Judith’s) and only two people filed he was also elected. His term is for four years, expiring in 2010.
Interviews were conducted in January 2007, five people were interviewed and Edward Tremper was selected to be appointed to the board filling the seat being vacated by appointee Judith Dillon. Mr. Tremper’s term will expire in December 2008.
ELECTION OF 2008:
Only Patrick McIntyre’s position is not expiring. Charles Lawson was term-limited so he could not file to run again. Gloria Crockett, Mel Earls and Ed Tremper’s terms were also up. Five people; Russell Best, Gloria Crockett, Mel Earls, Jaimee McCoy and Ed Tremper, filed to fill the four up-coming vacancies. Gloria, Mel, Jaimee and Ed Tremper were successful in their election attempts. Gloria, Mel and Jaimee received the four-year terms and Ed has a two-year term. Therefore, Gloria, Mel and Jaimee will have to run for re-election in 2012 and Patrick, whose four-year term expires in 2010 and Ed will have to file for re-election then.
Patrick McIntyre and Ed Tremper both filed for election in 2010
And since no one else filed, they are elected to four-year terms.
Mel will not be able to run again in 2012 due to term limits.
ELECTION OF 2012:
Based on a decision by the Lyon County Clerk, Mel Earls was determined to be eligible to run for election one more time.
Marjorie Gartenberg was appointed to fill the un-expired seat of Gloria Crockett who passed away.
Marjorie, Jaimee and Mel filed for election and since there were three open seats and no more than three filers they were all
elected to four year terms.
Mel Earls passed away in June 2013 and the Board appointed Rolland “Gene” Ray to fill his unexpired seat. Gene will have to run for election in 2014.
Ed Tremper resigned his un-expired seat in January 2014. The Board appointed James Moore to complete that term. James will have to file for election in 2014, also.
