Galveston College Faculty Senate, SGA and Political Science Club to host GCCD Board of Regents Candidate Forum

The Galveston College Faculty Senate, Student Government Association and Political Science Club will host a forum featuring candidates for Position 7 on the Galveston Community College District Board of Regents on Monday, April 9, at 7 p.m. in the Abe and Annie Seibel Foundation Wing on the Galveston College campus, 4015 Avenue Q, Galveston, Texas.

The college will have a special election in May for the unexpired term for Position 7, which had been filled by George Black. The term for Position 7 expires in 2022.

Candidates include retiree Curtiss Brown, higher education administrator Dr. Richard A. Prets, Jr., UTMB executive director for community engagement Rebecca Trout Unbehagen, small business owner Marie Robb and attorney Keith McFatridge, all of Galveston.

The forum will be moderated by Don Davison, Galveston College Faculty Senate president and professor of business/accounting.

Citizens are invited to email questions for the candidates, in advance, to Davison at ddavison@gc.edu. Audience members also will have an opportunity to submit questions to the candidates during the forum.

“Throughout its over 50-year history, Galveston College has been host to numerous political forums,” Davison said. “These forums have allowed candidates to express their platforms while at the same time giving the community the opportunity to meet and know the candidates better. As a community college, we believe forums are an essential part of the democratic process and as such are a key component of our mission to serve the community of Galveston.”

For more information, contact Don Davison at ddavison@gc.edu or the Galveston College Public Affairs office at (409) 944-1302
