Trustees have few responsibilities. Their main responsibility is to elect a Director. They are charged with oversight of the Citizens Trust and may recall the Director with a supermajority. Trustees are not responsible for making day-to-day decisions.
Despite the modest responsibilities of being a Trustee, there are a variety of protections written into the Act to prevent abuse:
- Trustees serve a single term and cannot be re-elected.
- Trustees can be removed from office in a recall election or if three-fourths of the Trustees vote for his or her removal.
- All Citizens Trust meetings are open to the public.
