San Jose Community Briefings for the week of July 15 – The Mercury News
Arts Committee vacancies
The San Jose Arts Commission is seeking to fill four vacancies. The Arts Commission is appointed by the city council to advise the council on all matters relating to the arts and cultural life of San Jose. The commission works closely with the city’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
The Arts Commission is made up of 11 members. Each member serves a four-year term with a two-term limit. The commission reviews art acquisitions, arts programs, public art projects, and grant applications from cultural groups and recommends funding levels for them to city council. Arts commissioners also serve as liaisons between the council and local, state, and national arts programs.
The arts commission meets the third Monday of the month, except in July and December, at 5:30 p.m. at the town hall, room W120.

New SJCC Trustee
Tony Alexander was recently appointed to fill a vacancy on the San Jose-Evergreen Community College District Board of Trustees. Alexander will represent Trust Zone 3, which covers the East and North San Jose zones. The board seat was vacated earlier this year when longtime administrator Craig Mann stepped down.
Alexander’s appointment expires on November 8, when the next regular election of board members will be held.
Alexander has a long history of involvement with numerous community organizations, including leadership roles with the San Jose/Silicon Valley NAACP, African American Community Service Agency, San Jose Conservation Corps, and Council of South Bay work. He was also a member of the Alum Rock Union School District Board of Trustees.
