Rather than appoint someone to fill the unexpired term of Dale Hardeman, president of the Cerritos College Board of Trustees, the trustees have voted to leave the seat vacant until the regular scheduled Nov. 3 election. In a unanimous vote July 7, trustees for the Norwalk-based college gave their approval to leave the seat on the seven-member board vacant.
Hardeman resigned July 1 for health reasons. Hardeman, 42, whose four-year term would have ended Nov. 3 announced he was leaving the post because his doctor advised him to curtail some of his activities because of high blood pressure.
Meanwhile, two of the three incumbents up for reelection have officially declared they are candidates for reelection.
Barbara J. Hayden, who has been on the board for two years, has filed to run for reelection with Los Angeles County registrar-recorder's office. Hayden replaced Richard Goul, who resigned as a trustee in 1985. Hayden, who was board vice president, will serve as president following Hardeman's resignation. She is from Downey.
Katie Norbak, who has been on the board for 18 years, also has filed to run for reelection. She is from La Mirada.
