His opponents are Maria Oquendo, M.D., and Ann Marie Sullivan, M.D. In the race for minority and underrepresented trustee, Renato Alarçon, M.D., has withdrawn his candidacy and been replaced by Gail Robinson, M.D. Her opponent is Stephen McLeod-Bryant, M.D. And Kathryn Kenney, D.O., has withdrawn from the race for member-in-training trustee.
