Carlsbad Municipal School Board candidates

Carlsbad Municipal School Board seats for Districts 1, 3 and 5 will be on the ballot this November. Seven candidates initially filed to run for the school board, but two have withdrawn their names from the race.

Simon Rubio currently represents District 1 of the CMS school board. Rubio will be running for re-election against Jason Burns and Clancey Jeanne McMillan.

Ron Singleton, who represents District 3, will be retiring after the election and CMS board president David Shoup, who represents District 5, said he will not be running for reelection in November for personal family reasons.

Tiffany Shirley, from District 3, and Tom Hollis, from District 5, will be replacing Shoup and Singleton’s respective seats on the board.

Former district two board member Trent Cornum, who resigned after moving, filed to run for District 5 but told the Current-Argus he resigned in support of Hollis.
