Candidates announced for May 3 Apex PRD board election

Eligible voters living in Apex Park and Recreation District will have the opportunity to elect two members to the district’s Board of Directors on Tuesday, May 3. The two current board members whose seats are up for election in May are Jeff Glenn and Lee Humrich.

The candidates for the two four-year board positions are Jeff Glenn and Vicki Pyne. Since they were the only two candidates to turn in the self-nomination forms by the deadline, this is an uncontested race.

The Apex PRD Board has a total of five members, all of which serve four-year terms. The remaining three board members’ seats will be up for election in May 2018.

The May 3 election will be conducted by mail-in ballot. These will be sent during the first part of April to active registered voters in the district. Appearing on the same ballot is Ballot Issue A, which proposes the renovation/expansion/construction of six facilities in various locations around the district.

All active registered voters in Apex PRD should receive their ballot in the mail around mid-April.
