Palm Springs-Cathedral City, CA
College Of The Desert Area 3 Trustee Fred Jandt has resigned his position due to health issues. Because of this, there is an ongoing search to replace Jandt whose term is set to expire in 2024.
In a letter to the board written March 13th, Jandt stated, “Recently I have experienced a change in health status. It is my judgment that I am not able to continue to participate with the strength I had been able to in the past. For that reason I am resigning my appointment effective March 31, 2023.”
Area 3 represents both Palm Springs and Cathedral City. With the Central Palm Springs College Campus located at Farrell and Baristo having an unknown future, the newly appointed trustee will have a lot of pressure on their shoulders to see the project go through.
