Final Vote Tally

The OC Registrar of Voters has posted the final vote tally for the election:


This would appear to be a comfortable victory. But special credit is due to the many volunteers who helped with our campaign. A check of the precinct results reveals that we won throughout Area 2, even overcoming a substantial advantage in name recognition enjoyed by our opponent in Ladera Ranch.  In fact, we won every Ladera Ranch precinct.

I will be sworn-in and seated on school board at the beginning of the meeting on December 10.  Thanks again for your support!

Thank You for Your Support!

I want to thank everyone who supported me in the campaign.  Precinct walking, talking and sharing information with your friends and community does have its reward:



We campaigned on ideas, on principles, and on the needs of our students and our community. This has produced a decisive victory. Yet I am joining a board made up of a majority who have demonstrated different viewpoints from my own. The coming experience promises to be interesting.

Even with the passage of Proposition 30, the CUSD board now "owns" a near-immediate budget crisis for the current school year.  Staying true to principles, I'm looking forward to tackling this difficult problem without delay. I ask for your continued support and counsel as we do so.

Jim
