    Greater Orange ELECTION RESULTS: DELIGIANNI and WAYLAND win OUSD

    DELIGIANNI and WAYLAND win OUSD

    Republican Party backed and Education Alliance tied Alexia Deligianni and Mark Wayland were elected to the Orange Unified School Board Tuesday night. The pair who ran as the AM slate defeated the well-financed and establishment-endorsement-rich Arianna Barrios and Florice Hoffman. The local race was part of a huge ballot that apparently led voters to rely on slate endorsements. Conservative Proposition 8 voters also appear to have made an impact in their voting to approve the initiative in Orange County 57% to 42.3%. In the two way race between Barrios and Wayland, the voting percentages closely mirrored the Proposition 8 vote: Wayland 56.9% and Barrios 43%. The OUSD Board philosophical split still favors the Godley Majority of Kathy Moffat, Lissa Smith, Kim Nichols; and John Ortega. Independent fiscal conservative Trustee Rick Ledesma often was the odd man out with oppositional defiant Trustee Steve Rocco often voting apart from the majority. Rocco came in third in his bid for a Santa Ana City Council seat and will have his last OUSD meeting this month.

    Trustee John Ortega now appears to be the swing vote on any major future issues that may split the OUSD Board. The much more conservative Ortega has often appeared to be a reluctant member of the Godley Majority, but has yet to find his own voice on the Board. OUSD Board watchers attribute Ortega’s silent voting style to the demands of his duties as an Orange County Deputy Sheriff and family obligations.

    Umm...didn't Barrios and Hoffman buy up most of the slates? If voters had relied on the slates, I don't think Deligianni and Wayland would have won.
