Another commissioner moves West

Friday, March 2, 2018 by Jessi Devenyns

On Feb. 26, the Human Rights Commission announced that Commissioner Marshall Bennett would be leaving his seat vacant beginning this week. Bennett, who has worked as an adjunct assistant professor in sociology at Austin Community College for the last six years, recently accepted a position as the director of advising services at Tacoma Community College. He has served on the commission for the last year and ran for mayor of Cedar Park in 2016. His former position as a Human Rights commissioner remains open, and his departure from the commission will leave an open seat in several working groups as well.
