Thursday, Aug. 7—Ten people are vying for seven seats on the Ramona Community Planning Group and five are seeking three slots on the Ramona Unified School Board, according to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters website this afternoon. All are four-year terms.
Unless other candidates enter the race for two water district divisions, three will be no need for an election and the two men who have filed as candidates will be elected.
Joining school board incumbents Rodger Dohm, Kim Lasley and Bob Stoody on the Nov. 4 ballot are retired teacher Joyce Daubert and educator/farmer Dick Lemire.
Planning group incumbents Scotty Ensign, Kristi Mansolf, Dennis Sprong and Kevin F.J. Wallace are seeking re-election and are joining candidates Frank D. Lucio, Robin Joy Maxson, Elio Noyas, David Ross, David E. Stone and Rick Terrazas on the ballot.
In Ramona Municipal Water District’s Division 2, former water board director George L. Boggs is the long candidate so far, and incumbent Joseph Zenovic is the only candidate for Division 4 listed on the registrar’s website.
The deadline to file as a candidate in the November election is tomorrow, Aug. 8, at 5 p.m. The exception is if an incumbent has not filed by Aug. 8. In that case, the candidate filing deadline will be extended until Aug. 13. The extension rule does not apply to community planning areas, according to the Candidate Filing Guide.

Standing in front of the sheriff’s Ramona station at Main Street and Montecito Road on Aug. 5, Crime Prevention Specialist Barbara Wallace reminds the community that it’s the Sheriff’s Night Out Against Crime with a row of Burma Shave-type signs. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, which recognized the event across the county, said Night Out Against Crime is a day when communities take a stand to let criminals know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Two of Wallace’s signs say “Crime is low” and “Because you care.”
