    MEASURE S PASSES

    FOURTH TRY IS THE CHARM
    Greater Orange approves 
    Measure S School Bond

    After four previous attempts to have voters approve a bond measure, the voters of Greater Orange approved Measure S. The $288 million bond measure will be evenly split between Orange Unified's four comprehensive high schools.

    The win for Measure S was another loss in a string of losses for former Villa Park Councilwomen Deborah Pauly.  The Orange County Republican Party also opposed Measure S.

    While more organized and well financed, Measure S supporters were also helped by the unusual colliding over writing the opposition ballot language for Measure S by two fringe anti-Measure S politicians- Pauly and former OUSD Trustee Steve Rocco.  Ultimately the courts ruled against Pauly. 

    Following that court victory,  Rocco's ballot rebuttal to the Measure S ballot statement was not accepted by the Orange County Registrar of Voters.

    The underfinanced and outnumbered anti-Measure A side took to unusual tactics including spray painting Yes on Measure A signs to turn them into No signs.  In a last ditch effort over the weekend, an anti-Measure A mass mailing to a few zip codes in Orange clearly violated state election laws that require  financial committee names and FPPC numbers on political mailers.  

    In the OUSD Trustee races for two seats, Trustee Area 2 incumbent John Ortega easily won re-election over Orange Planning Commissioner Daniel Correa in his first contested race since being elected in the 2001 Orange Recall.

    In OUSD Trustee Area 6, Pastor Brenda Lebsack ran as a slate with Ortega. Lebsack defeated her two opponents Nicole Baitix-Kennedy and current Trustee Mark Wayland's son Jeremy Wayland.   

    In the City of Villa Park,  the two council seats were won by Vince Rossini and Robert Pitts in a come-from-behind victory over Howard Kirschner.

    Didn't term limits pass for OUSD board members? When does it take effect?
     
    Measure S, not A.
