The Referendum failed 1,159 NO, to 644 YES
In Orange, more than 600 residents voted and the project failed by 65 votes.
Orange — YES 302; NO 367
Woodbridge — YES 225; NO 521
Bethany — YES 117; NO 271
Dozens of residents told Orange Live that they did not know enough about the project to make an informed decision.
As people hear the results some are “beside themselves” and others are “not surprised.”
But life will go on. The Spartans teams will continue to play their hardest and strive for excellence.
Perhaps in the future, if the subject arises again, the district will use a different strategy to get the word out so everyone understands every bit of what they are being asked to approve.
