FREMONT—Ohlone College trustees Wednesday night appointed Ann Crosbie to fill a vacant seat on the board.
Crosbie will replace former trustee Nick Nardolillo, who resigned in October amid a residency scandal. She was one of 11 candidates who interviewed to serve out the final year of Nardolillo's term.
A substitute teacher in the Fremont school district, Crosbie ran unsuccessfully for Fremont school board in 2008.
She was a member of the organizing committee for the school district's Measure K parcel tax, approved by voters last year. She also serves on the boards of the Fremont Education Foundation, StarStruck Theatre and Music for Minors II.
Ranking second to Crosbie was Gus Morrison, who spent a quarter-century on Fremont's City Council, much of it as mayor, before being termed out of office in 2004.
The remaining candidates were Bob Brunton, who served as a trustee from 1996 to 2008; David Sheen, who lost a 2008 bid for the board; Bob Douglass, a former Fremont planning commissioner who chairs the Ohlone College Foundation; Steve Allen, a longtime Fremont resident; Nader Ayad, a jeweler; Ramona Bascom, a Dominican nun; Daniel Kennerk, an employment professional; Naeem Malik, an engineer; and Gene Page, a member of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce.
