Layman Running for OTC Board

Political fundraiser and Sarah Steelman ally Jeff Layman is taking the plunge into local politics himself, with a bid for a slot on the Ozarks Technical Community College Board of Trustees.

The OTC Board consists of six members elected from the district at large. Members are elected for terms of six years, with two members being elected in each even-numbered year.

The terms of vice president Jackie McKinsey and Dolores Brooks are up. Tuesday was the first day of filing for the April election. It's unclear if both will seek re-election. The top two vote getters win seats on the board.

"It's amazing how OTC has impacted so many people’s lives in the Ozarks," said Layman in a statement Tuesday. "It is also very exciting to see how far OTC has come in recent years. I really feel the possibilities are unlimited for the college, along with its faculty, students and graduates. It would be an honor for me to be a part of such a respected and established institution," he added.

Layman is a senior vice president and wealth advisor at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Springfield Missouri. He's also a Republican fundraiser and is aiding the 7th District Congressional campaign of auctioneer Billy Long.
