is the first election in which voters in trustee areas can only vote
for a representative from that area. Previously, trustees were elected
at-large, meaning that anyone within the community college district
could vote for any of the trustees.
Maureen O'Donnell, who currently represents Trustee Area No. 5, lived outside the trustee area as of February 2012, according to the Daily Breeze. If she wanted to run for re-election, she would have to move. Because of this, she was not considered an incumbent.
Nevertheless, she told the Breeze that "she long ago decided against running for re-election in 2013," wrote reporter Rob Kuznia.
North Redondo Beach is part of Trustee Area No. 3. Elections for that seat will be held in November 2015.
