    Villa Park says yes to fireworks...no to schools....
    OUSD's MEASURE K defeated

    Villa Park voters in its 6 precincts delivered the closing blow to OUSD's Measure K Tuesday evening as the measure fell short of the 55% supermajority need to pass with a 53.9% yes vote.

    The Villa Park's Safe and Sane Fireworks Measure II passed with 55% of the vote.

    Measure K supporters ran a well financed  professional campaign while  the No on K opponents waged a campaign of low tech sound bites to deny Measure K the 1.1% of votes it fell short.

    Orange Unified remains the only major school district in Orange County not to pass a school improvement bond. Both Anaheim Union and Fullerton Union High School Districts passed bonds Tuesday, while the North Orange County Community College District's Bond also failed.  

    All three OUSD Trustee incumbents -who supported Measure K -Kathy Moffat, Tim Surridge and Rick Ledesma easily won re-election.

    In Orange City Council elections former OUSD Trustee Kim Nichols won a seat on the council and Councilman Fred Whitaker was re-elected.  Mayor Tita Smith was easily re-elected with 81% of the vote.

    Villa Park Councilwomen Diana Fascenelli  barely held onto her seat winning the third seat on the City Council by just 71 votes.  Bill Nelson (21%) and Robert Collacott (20%) won the two open seats.

    Larry Labrado easily kept his seat on the Rancho Santiago Community College Board with 52.3% of the vote.
