Measure J’s election victory was validated by an Orange County Superior Court judge yesterday. In response to the court ruling in favor of the North Orange County Community College District and the Registrars of Voters in both Orange and Los Angeles counties, NOCCCD Interim Chancellor Fred Williams shared these thoughts:
It is my pleasure to inform you that today NOCCCD’s Measure J victory was upheld by a judge from the Orange County Superior Court. The judge found unequivocally in our favor. This has been a long journey, but in spite of the narrow margin, the recounts, and the lawsuit, NOCCCD has prevailed!
The attached press release has more information, but I think we can finally feel secure in the results and move forward with completing our Master Plan. Thank you, again, to everyone who helped on the Measure J campaign. This was truly a team effort and it is a team win.
