The 2012 slates of candidates are set for four local elected boards, after prospective board members had a few additional days in which to file because at least one incumbent on each board didn’t file for reelection.
Two races won’t go to election Nov. 6.
There were three four-year terms open for the San Simeon Community Ser vices District, and three people filed to fill them, so those candidates are to be appointed in lieu of election. They are Directors Alan Fields, Leroy Price and Daniel Morris Williams.
However, one two-year term on the San Simeon board will go on the ballot, because incumbent Vice Chairman Ralph Mc- Adams and Mary Power Giacoletti are each seeking the position.

The Cambria Community Healthcare District Board of Trustees came up one candidate short to fill three open seats for four-year terms. Incumbents Barbara Bronson Gray and Kristi Jenkins filed and are to be appointed in lieu of election. That will leave two seats (one four-year term and one two-year term) to be filled, presumably by the board.
These slates of candidates also will be on the ballot:
• Coast Unified School District Board of Trustees, three four-year seats: Board President Cindy Fratto, Judith A. Hillen, Jack Mettier and Sue Nash filed. Current trustee Victoria Dandurand filed for election to the Cayucos Elementary School District, and she’ll face off with Allen John Buentiempo and Whit Donaldson.
For the past 80 years, Cayucos has sent its high school students to Coast Union High School. However, that could change, depending on the results of a petition-committee review-election about transferring those highschoolers to San Luis Coastal Unified School District.
• Cambria Community Ser vices District, three seats up for election: Directors Muril Clift and Gail Robinette filed, as did Kim McDaniel and three of four applicants who had sought a vacancy that Gail Robinette won in December: Tom Gray, Amanda Rice and Mike McLaughlin. (The fourth applicant in December, Valerie Bentz, told The Cambrian she’d decided not to run in this election because of the pressure of her other commitments, including her professorship. She had been a candidate in the 2010 election.)
Steve Kniffen has said he intends to register by Sept. 10 as a write-in candidate for both the Cambria services district and Coast school board races.
