More than 20 people have expressed interest in being appointed as a trustee on the Cerritos Community College District board to fill a portion of the term left vacant by board President Barbara J. Hayden, who was recently elected to the Downey City Council.
The Cerritos College board voted last week to appoint a trustee to fill 15 months of Hayden's remaining 3 1/2-year term. The balance of the term will be filled in the November, 1989, election.
Hayden was elected in 1985 to fill the unexpired term of a college trustee who resigned. Hayden, 47, was reelected in November, 1987, to a full four-year term.
She defeated Downey Councilman James S. Santangelo in the June 7 election. Hayden said she was prevented from holding two elected offices by state law and Downey city ordinance.
