— Colorado Mountain College's Board of Trustees is seeking candidates to run for four seats up for election this fall, including the Routt County seat currently held by Ken Brenner.

Brenner, the owner of Performance Sports Medicine and a former Steamboat Springs City Council member, said Tuesday that he intends to run for a second term.

Brenner was elected to the CMC board in 2011 and said he's enjoyed being a part of the board and helping to guide college leaders.

"We've had a very interesting four years, and I'm really excited about our new leadership and new strategic plan," Brenner said. "It's been a really exciting journey."

Other open positions for districts, which are defined by the public school districts within them, include District 2, the Roaring Fork School District, District 4, Summit County School District; and District 6, Lake County and Eagle County school districts.

Each term is for four years.
