Cuesta: Alexander leads in race for SLO County Community College board

Charlotte Alexander, once director of Cuesta College public affairs and community relations, was headed to victory over Peter Sysak, the school’s former police chief, for a seat on the San Luis Obispo County Community College District Board of Trustees.

They competed to represent the board’s Area 4, which includes Arroyo Grande, Nipomo, Oceano and portions of southern San Luis Obispo.

The seat was held by Marie Kiersch, who chose not to seek re-election. Incumbent Pat Mullen ran uncontested.
