COSTA MESA SANITARY DISTRICT
Incumbent Jim Ferryman has a commanding lead - 2,986 votes over fellow-incumbent Art Perry. Perry leads Gary Monahan by 4,790 votes. Self-professed "solutioneer" Jim Fitzpatrick trails Monahan by 2,456 votes, missing out on that seat he promised us he would win by more than 7,000 votes, and Christopher Luntsford trails.
MESA WATER DISTRICT
Incumbent Jim Fisler leads challenger Alex Reich by 1,499 votes.
Measure Y - the Smart Growth Initiative is passing with a 2-1 margin. Measure Z, the City-generated measure designed to confuse the voters, is passing, but by a much smaller margin.
FAIRVIEW PARK ISSUES
Measure AA, the citizen-generated measure designed to protect Fairview Park, is passing by a wide margin - much more than 2-1. The city measure - BB - which was placed on the ballot to confuse the voters, is failing.
MEDICAL MARIJUANA ISSUES
Both citizen-generated medical marijuana measures - V and W - are failing. Measure X, the City-generated substitute is passing.
