VALE — Roger Findley says his victory Tuesday in the race for the Treasure Valley Community College board was a mandate from voters to spark change.

“They voted on the issues and they liked what I was saying about the issues,” said Findley. “I think this sends a very clear message that voters are not happy with what is going on.”

Findley, a retired TVCC teacher, defeated Jed Myers, for the four-year slot. Findley collected 2,200 votes while Myers finished with 1,565 votes. Myers, an incumbent who decided to challenge Findley, works for the Bank of Eastern Oregon in Ontario.

Myers currently sits on the board in the No. 1 position. His term ends June 30. Findley fills the No. 6 position on the board now but the term on that slot was also to expire June 30.

A slight difference . . .
