Collette Steps Down from CCC Board of Education

 Carlotta Collette resigned from the Clackamas Community College Board of Education Wednesday, after representing zone 1 for seven years. The board passed a Declaration of Board Vacancy for the zone, an area that includes the city of Milwaukie. 

Collette notified her colleagues on the board of her resignation and told them it had been a difficult decision to make.

“I love the college and am deeply committed to community colleges as the most cost effective form of higher education we can offer. I am leaving because I simply don’t have the time to dedicate myself as much as I’d like to help our college move forward,” she said in a written statement.

Collette joined the board in 2005 and has since been appointed and then elected to the Metro Council. She represents district 2, which includes several Clackamas County cities and unincorporated areas as well as a portion of Southwest Portland.

Board chairman Ron Adams formed a subcommittee that will oversee the process of appointing a new board member for zone 1. Once appointed, the new board member will serve through June 30, 2013, following the next board election. At that time, the appointed board member may run for election for the position to fulfill the remainder of the Collette’s unexpired term, which ends in 2015.
