One School Board Candidate Bows Out

A newly planned move out of the area has forced Michele Taylor-Bible to stop campaigning.

Michele Taylor-Bible, candidate for Capistrano Unified’s school board, has essentially dropped out of the race, she told Patch Tuesday.

Next year, her family will be relocating, so she would not be able to serve out a four-year term. Taylor-Bible said she has stopped campaigning, but her name will still appear on the ballot.

Taylor-Bible was a candidate for Trustee Area No. 2, which includes Coto de Caza, Ladera Ranch and parts of San Juan Capistrano. Also running for that area are Carol McCormick, backed by advocacy group Children First, school district critic Jim Reardon and Don Franklin Richardson, a retired public school teacher.

Trustee Area No. 2 is one of four seats that are up for grabs this election. When the current trustees drew the boundary areas earlier this year, they left Area No. 2 without a sitting incumbent.

Taylor-Bible has been an active volunteer with the local schools.

"A newly planned move out of the area has forced Michele Taylor-Bible to stop campaigning." Don't you have to start campaigning if you are going stop campaigning, lol? I assumed she was another CUCF/CUEA plant. Was she actually a real candidate?

I had a very pleasant conversation with her. She struck me as very bright and sincere. Although the move was a long-time dream, Michele said she had looked forward to running for school board for the past six years. So the move is bittersweet.

idk, Penny. I've never heard any serious discussion of her positions on anything (or McCormack's either for that matter). That's definitely CUCF's approach. Pursuing 2 mutually exclusive, long time dreams at the same time. That doesn't seem to add up.

It would probably make more sense if you knew all the details, but it's personal. I believed her.
