OUSD BOARD MEMBER WAYLAND ENDORSES ANDREA YAMASAKI FOR VACANT TRUSTEE AREA ONE SEAT TO BE FILLED BY VOTERS IN MARCH 1ST 2016 ALL MAIL SPECIAL ELECTION
ORANGE — Though he didn’t vote to appoint Community Volunteer Andrea Yamasaki to a vacated school board seat last September, an Orange Unified School District (OUSD) Board of Trustees Member is now endorsing her and urging voters to join him in voting for her in the upcoming All Mail Special Election to be held March 1, 2016 to fill that seat. Trustee Area 6 incumbent Mark Wayland said that he regrets his vote to provisionally appoint Greg Salas to the vacant OUSD Trustee Area One seat – an appointment terminated just 38 days later through a petition drive that gathered more than 3,600 signatures from outraged OUSD voters to force the Special Election.

FY 2014-15 Comprehensive Financial Accounting Report (CAFR) and OC Citizens’ Report Released
 
The Orange County Auditor-Controller released the Comprehensive Financial Accounting Report (CAFR) for fiscal year 2014-15 and the OC Citizens’ report, a companion piece written in non-technical language. According to Auditor-Controller Eric H. Woolery, “Orange County had a good fiscal year 2014-15, revenues were up, expenses were down, but the talk of the town is the new line item on the financial statements, the Net Pension Liability or NPL.”
 
Net Pension Liability (NPL)
 
The NPL is not new; the pension liability has always been reported in the footnotes to financial statements.  However, a new accounting standard issued by the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB 68) now requires all government agencies to show their pension liability on the face of the Statement of Net Position.
