The Hollister School District Board of Education on Jan. 4 appointed Jose A. Perez, Jr., to fill a vacancy on the five-member body, according to an announcement from HSD.
A vacancy on the board occurred as of Dec. 8 due to a lack of candidates in the recent election, says the announcement.
Perez will fill the seat representing Trustee Area 1 until the November 2024 election, unless a petition containing sufficient signatures calling for a special election is filed with the San Benito County of Schools. Such a petition must be filed no later than Feb. 3.
