Tony Beall, The Capistrano Dispatch "It’s a moot point now. That was an issue before we turned in signatures. We gave those trustees every opportunity to resign and they chose not to, that’s a question for them. Removing trustees Draper and Benecke will save the district millions of dollars. They are wasting millions of dollars at virtually every board meeting.”
Beall is a Rancho Santa Margarita councilmember and a member of the CUSD Recall Committee.

Editorial, The Orange County Register "Supporters of the recall have called on the four original board members to resign – a call echoed by the Orange County Republican Party Central Committee. New recall efforts are under way to remove two of the four members. Those four – Marlene M. Draper, Sheila J. Benecke, Duane E. Stiff and Mike Darnold – could make a second wise decision. They should resign and spare the county’s largest school district continued division."

Tom Russell, The Trabuco Canyon News “Today’s indictments are also an indictment of the four remaining Fleming-era Trustees. For years, they chose to ignore Fleming’s wrongdoings. We call upon Trustees Marlene Draper, Shelia Benecke, Duane Stiff and Mike Darnold to resign immediately. If they fail to do so, we will be left with no choice but to commence a recall campaign to remove them from office.”
Russell is a CUSD parent and spokesperson for the CUSD Recall Committee and the Committee to Reform CUSD.
