Boylan, who has a doctorate in psychology, listed himself as an “educator” on the ballot. He is one of five people on the ballot for the full term. Four candidates are seeking election for a short term. For both the long and short terms voters are asked to select two.
Boylan’s name has already been printed on the ballots. His Oct. 22 notification of withdrawal to El Dorado County Registrar of Voters Bill Schultz and a separate press release to the Mountain Democrat leaves four active candidates for the Mother Lode USD full term.
The remaining candidates are business owner Henry Sandigo, appointed incumbent Gene R.Bist Sr., nursing home administrator Terri Ballesteros and former principal and current instructional accountability consultant John M. “Pat” Nordquist.
Boylan said he is withdrawing “for personal reasons” and “expressed his appreciation for all those who supported and assisted his campaign.”
