Rita Peters Makes Her Return to Menifee Union School Board

A familiar face has returned to the Menifee Union School District governing board to fill a seat she previously ran for, but lost.

Rita Peters was sworn into office Tuesday evening to fill the seat previously held by Scott Mann, who resigned once he became mayor.

"I knew I’d be back," said Peters, who served on the board from 1999 to 2011. She ran for re-election in 2012, but lost her seat to Mann.

Peters was one of four applicants who applied fornthe vacant seat. After interviewing each applicant during a special meeting held Monday, the board welcomed Peters back.

She will remain on the board until voters decide in November who will serve the last two years of Mann’s term. Peters said she plans on running in that election.

"It’s always good to have five members on the board back and functioning," said board member Robert O’Donnell.

Peters said she is very happy to be back and looks forward to catching up on all the issues the board will address in the new year.

  1. I have to question why the MUSD School Board, or any other governing body would appoint someone to a position the voters clearly stated they didn't want by way of the last election. Of course with voter districts coming into play with the next election, and Mrs. Peters clearly having a single-minded interest in the Quail Valley neighborhood, she'll be a shoe-in come November.

  2. My opinion is that they just want someone who will play ball. I'm a QV resident and I did not vote for her last time. QV does not need anything that the rest of the district doesn't need. ALL kids in the district should be the priority, not one particular voter district.
