    YAMASAKI LANDSLIDE in OUSD

    A SUPER TUESDAY FOR YAMASAKI

    In a clear rebuke of the Orange County Republican Establishment, Orange Unified Republican voters joined with Democrats and Independents and elected Community Advocate Andrea Yamasaki over Republican Establishment Endorsed Greg Salas.  

    Winning 74 % of the vote, Yamasaki easily won election after her supporters ousted Salas by petition from his appointed post.

    Yamasaki won based on her community connections over Salas who's main community connection was that he played on a basketball team with OUSD Trustee Timothy Surridge who admitted he had recruited Salas for the vacancy on the OUSD Board after the resignation of Diane Singer.     

    Even after being rebuffed by the community in a petition, Salas forced the district to spend over $500,000 on a Special Election by entering the election. 

    While Yamasaki conducted a flawless campaign,  Salas struggled to have a campaign of any significant meaning and could go down as one of the worst local campaigns ever waged.
