The race for three seats on the City Council in the Nov. 6 election offers an eclectic field of candidates, ranging from an incumbent seeking his fourth term to a 19-year-old college student. No matter who is elected to the City Council, the race will be noteworthy for at least two reasons. First, two of the three incumbents have chosen not to run, thereby guaranteeing the council at least two new faces for the first time since the 1970s.

The communities are different, but their educational straits are similar: campuses crammed with portable buildings, electrical wiring too feeble to support the latest technology, sagging infrastructure, and heating and cooling systems on the fritz. It's a lousy setting for teaching kids, school officials in the Capistrano, Huntington Beach and Santa Ana districts decided. So all three this month are seeking multimillion-dollar school bonds to repair aging campuses and build new ones.

City Councilwoman Carolyn Nash announced this week that she will not run for reelection in November. In a prepared statement, Nash said she cannot pledge another four years to the council because of "business and personal time requirements and commitments." Nash was first elected to the City Council in 1992 and served as mayor in 1995. During her tenure, she was an advocate for the city's goals of controlled growth, ridgeline preservation, open spaces and maintaining a small-town atmosphere.
