On March 27, five new Directors will be elected to the Recreation Centers of Sun City West’s nine-member Governing Board. The new Directors will start their terms on July 1.

Seven candidates are running for the five open slots. Three of the positions are three-year terms, one is a two-year term, and one is a one-year term. The top three vote-getters will earn three-year terms, and the fourth-highest will get the two-year term, and the fifth will get a one-year term.

Additionally, the top vote-getter who is not already serving on the Board will immediately be seated to fill the remaining portion of former Director Ernie Prindle, who resigned in December. At the conclusion of that term on June 30, the new Director will continue on with a new three-year term beginning July 1.

(Director Tim Hurley already serves on the Board and will still be serving the conclusion of his one-year appointment when the Election results are in.)
