BISMARCK - Four applicants for the state Board of Higher Education is too few, a state nominating committee decided Tuesday.

The board nominating committee met this afternoon to consider the four applicants for the seat now held by Board of Higher Education President John Q. Paulsen. Instead of forwarding three names to Gov. John Hoeven as finalists, they voted 3-2 to solicit more applicants.

Paulsen himself is one of the applicants. He is eligible for a second four-year term.

The others are Heather Hertz, Mott; Robert Wetsch, Mandan, and Robert Harms, Bismarck.

"Four is the smallest (number) we've had in some time," said Superintendent of Public Instruction Wayne Sanstead. In 2002, the nominating committee had 17 applications to fill a spot vacated by the resignation of John T. Korsmo, he said.

The nominating committee will take additional applications until 4 p.m. April 30, then meet May 13 to consider applications. Applications are available from Sanstead's office by calling (701) 328-4572.
