The terms of the remaining two members of the council, Carlos Olvera and Scott Schoeffel, run through 2016.

The candidates, in the order they will appear on the ballot, are:

Chuck Rathbone
Jody Payne
Richard A. Viczorek
Nancy J. Jenkins
Joe Muller
Roy “Ryan” Divel IV

The forum was presented by the League of Women Voters of the Capistrano Bay Area, in partnership with the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce, the Dana Point Civic Association, and the Dana Point Times.
