Rafner, Gibson, Wooden to run for Del Mar school board again

By Karen Billing

Del Mar Union School District Board President Doug Rafner and trustees Kristin Gibson and Scott Wooden pulled papers on July 14 from the San Diego County Registrar of Voters to run for second terms on the board in the November election.

Rafner said the group opted to run again to carry forward the strong momentum the district has right now; as an example, he said he was extremely proud that last month the board approved a balanced budget for 2014-15.

“I think we’re doing some good things in the district,” Rafner said.

Candidates can file through Aug. 8 so it won’t be known until that deadline date if there will be a need for an election for the Del Mar Union School District board.

Three seats are also up for election on both the Solana Beach School District Board and San Dieguito Union High School District board. Seats up for election on the Solana Beach board include those held by Vice President Vicki King and members Debra Schade and Jeff Busby. Schade said she plans to run for re-election. The seats of John Salazar, Barbara Groth and Amy Herman are up for election on the San Dieguito Union High School District board. Herman and Groth have both stated they plan to run.

As of press time, it was not known what other candidates will be running for the boards. After the Aug. 8 candidate filing deadline there is a five-day extension in races where no incumbents file for re-election.
