The resident-generated initiative, Measure Y, continues to pass by a huge margin. Measure Z, the city-generated measure designed to confuse voters, is passing, but by a much smaller margin.
FAIRVIEW PARK ISSUES
The citizen-generated measure, AA, is passing with an overwhelming margin. The city-generated measure, BB, designed to confuse voters, is failing.
MEDICAL MARIJUANA ISSUES
Both citizen-generated medical marijuana issues - V and W - are failing badly. City-generated measure X is passing by a nearly 3,000 vote margin.
