Ritto, Frank to run again for Rancho Santa Fe School board


By Karen Billing

Trustees Todd Frank and Marti Ritto have decided to seek re-election on the Rancho Santa Fe School District Board.

“I’ve so enjoyed being able to help the school district expand the music programs as well as the robotics and technical programs these past four years,” Ritto said. “There are so many exciting things happening in the world of education these days!”

Ritto’s and Frank’s two seats are up for re-election in November. Monday, July 14, was the first day for candidates to file. Candidates can file through Aug. 8.

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 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 board. Herman and Groth have both stated they plan to run.

After the Aug. 8 candidate filing deadline there is a five-day extension in races where no incumbents file for re-election. For more information, visit
