This is a David and Goliath story for sure. The residents of San Mateo City have to fight the Elected Officials and Developers every so often just to maintain the Neighborhoods and Village atmosphere. The Elected Officials put a competing Measure R on the Ballot instead of supporting the residents Measure Y.
As of today the YES on Y is leading by a grand total of 10 votes.
The SMC Elections Office today is reporting that there are only 200 remaining ballots to be counted in the Entire County. If that is the case it looks like Measure Y has passed.
The question I had is What happens if both Measures fail? It’s my understanding that the Residents have no option but to continue to put the Measure on the ballot as it approaches expiration. That is a lot of work.
Good Luck on Yes Measure Y
