David B. Lang retained his seat on the South Orange County Community College Board of Trustees in Tuesday’s election, in a hard-fought victory over Carolyn Inmon.

With all 691 precincts reporting in Area 1, Lang won 124,936 votes (52.6 percent) to Inmon’s 112,411 (47.4 percent).

After almost 100,000 votes had been tallied, Lang held a small lead over his opponent.

But Lang, a board member since 1996 who ran unopposed in 2004, pulled away after that.

Lang’s candidate’s statement shows that his priorities include maintaining the fiscal stability and the quality of the academic programs of the district as well completing the planning process for Advanced Technology and Education Park, the district’s satellite campus in Tustin.

Lang, a certified public accountant, earned a Bachelor of Science in accounting from Pennsylvania State University and a master’s degree in business taxation from the University of Southern California. He and his wife Julia live in Irvine.

Carolyn Inman’s candidate statement lists her priorities as solving the district’s accreditation issue, and working to eliminate is endorsed by the SOCCCD Faculty Association, eliminating ‘micromanagement by the Chancellor and Board of Trustees’ and restoring respect.

She earned a Bachelor of Arts in speech and English from University of California, Los Angeles, and a Master of Arts degree in speech from California State University, Northridge.
