Veterans Day Election Update
THE LATEST NUMBERS AT 5:00 P.M. ON VETERANS DAY
As anticipated, the Registrar of Voters updated the numbers at 5:00 p.m. Veterans Day. Here's how they look now.
COSTA MESA CITY COUNCIL
Sandy Genis and John Stephens remain well ahead in this race. She holds a 28 vote lead over him. Allan Mansoor trails Stephens by 1,930 votes for the remaining spot on the council. Mayor Steve Mensinger remains 414 votes behind Mansoor (thanks to Honeyman for the catch). Jay Humphrey continues to lose ground on Mensinger. Lee Ramos is well off the pace and Al Melone is dead last.
COSTA MESA SANITARY DISRICT
Incumbents Jim Ferryman and Art Perry continue to hold commanding leads over challengers. Ferryman leads Perry by 2,181 votes. Perry's lead for the second seat over Gary Monahan has grown to 3,600 votes. Jim Fitzpatrick and Christopher Luntsford continue to trail the field badly.
MESA WATER DISTRICT
Incumbent Jim Fisler holds what certainly appears to be an insurmountable lead over newcomer Alex Reich. His lead continues to grow.
Both citizen-generated measures, V and W, continue to fail badly while the City generated Measue X continues to pass.
Both growth-related issues, Measures Y and Z, continue to pass, but the citizen-generated Measure Y has an overwhelming lead of nearly 4,000 votes.
FAIRVIEW PARK ISSUES
Citizen-generated Measure AA is passing overwhelmingly. The City measure placed on the ballot to confuse the voters, BB, is failing.
VOTE BY DISTRICTS
The bogus measure placed on the ballot by Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer that provides for a 6-voting district model PLUS a directly-elected mayor, is passing handily. There was no organized opposition to this measure - I was the only person who wrote against it.
