The Superior Board of Trustees has two more vacancies to fill in the aftermath of last week’s election.

Mayor Pro-Tem Mark Lacis was recently elected as mayor and Trustee Tim Howard is stepping down from his position.

Howard was elected to a four-year term in November 2020 that wasn’t set to expire until November 2024. Howard recently stepped down and his last Superior Board of Trustees meeting was Monday.

During the meeting, Howard didn’t discuss why he was stepping down from the position. He remarked on what the board was able to achieve during his tenure, such as rebuilding after the Marshall Fire, a sustainability plan and gun violence protection ordinances. He also said that the board had not made progress with inclusivity or affordable housing.

“To all the newly elected and to-be-appointed trustees, do better than I did. Don’t allow important issues such as equity, attainable housing or increasing our ability to serve the public good with prudent tax increases to be shoved to the side because they are hard,” Howard said during Monday’s meeting.

Howard could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.

With these two vacancies, the town is anticipating interviewing applicants and appoint trustee members during the regular board meeting on Dec. 12.

The town is currently taking letters of interest for these two vacancies. Trustee members will serve the remainder of the terms, which is November 2024.

To be eligible, applicants must be U.S. citizens, over the age of 18, eligible to vote and have resided in Superior for at least 12 consecutive months. Applications must be submitted to Town Clerk Lydia Yecke by 4 p.m. on Dec. 2 at Superior Town Hall or through email at

More information regarding the application process is available on Superior social media pages.
