The Election By-Laws of OUSD require that a Trustee live in the area that they represent-but they are elected by the whole district. Singer represented Trustee Area 1 that centered on the Anaheim Hills areas of OUSD.
In a Press Release from OUSD the following procedure was outlined:
"The Board of Education may either call a special election or make a provisional appointment to fill the vacancy within 60 days. The District is seeking persons who are interested in serving on the Board. A person appointed to fill the vacancy shall hold office until the next regularly scheduled election, whereupon an election shall be held to fill the remainder of the unexpired term.
The application/nomination period ends on August 28, 2015 at 4:00 pm
First elected in 2010, Singer faced no opponent in her reelection bid in 2014 and was declared the winner by default. One of three women on the OUSD Board, Singer and the other two women- Trustees Kathy Moffat and Dr. Alexia Deligianni-Brydeges- often formed a minority voting block on the seven member board.
