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.
