The Colorado Springs City Council recently appointed three new trustees to CSHF’s board: Curtis Brown, Kent Fortune and Annette Fryman. Their terms start on January 1, 2022, and they replace three outgoing, term-limited trustees: Kathy Boe, Jon Medved and Thayer Tutt. We welcome these new trustees to our organization and are grateful for their interest and willingness to serve.
The Mayor of Colorado Springs is responsible for nominating trustee candidates to the Colorado Springs City Council, which makes the final appointment decisions. Each trustee term is three years and trustees may serve up to three, three-year terms.
Twenty-four eligible candidates applied for the opportunity to serve, which is an indicator of strong civic engagement.
