San Mateo County’s Measure W Fails.

 

samtrans-1-1533683163-3178

Based on the information from San Mateo County Election Office there was a total of 286,210 ballots received, of that amount 265,793 ballots tallied a total 249,288 voted either yes or no for Measure W. That also means that 16,605 votes were not tallied or didn’t vote either way for Measure W. = 6.24% of the 265,793.

With a total of 20,417 remaining ballots to be tallied, minus the 6,24% No tally or vote for Measure W average leaves 19,149 votes to be tallied. The Yes on Measure W would have to get 68.7% of the remaining ballots “and they are statistically unlikely to meet the necessary threshold”.

With that information We are calling Measure W Failed.

Total Registered Voters 399,591, 286,210 Voted = 72% Turnout

 

San Mateo County Elections Office should display:

These are just a few of the topics and names I think about when I think of SamTrans.

 

SamTrans spent $300,000 of Taxpayer money for “Education” Measure W 2018. I think Jim Hartnett and the Board should pay that back. The public never asked to be educated. Same goes for the Supervisors who spent $350,000 of Taxpayers money.

Yes on W San Mateo County Neighbors for Congestion Relief raised $882,369.74 through 10/20/2018. That is all private funding and that is fine.

Here are the Neighbors that donated

The No on W raised about $5,700. The measure is failing at this moment.

Return the flag you removed

Editor,

During and after the Civil War, mostly through the effort of American women, the soldiers’ graves from both sides of the conflict were decorated with flags. The practice continued to grow in popularity in America as a means to memorialize and honor those who served in the military and gave their lives for their country. Finally, in 1971, Congress took action to distinguish the last Monday in May as Memorial Day, a federal holiday.

In San Carlos, there stands a statue called “Balancing Act.” It is often decorated for whatever holiday it happens to be, or for fun, when one of the teams like the Giants or Warriors are in the play-offs.

On Friday, May 25, I noticed the statue had no decoration for the Memorial Day weekend. On Saturday, I endeavored to do something about it and went to Judy’s Flags in Belmont and bought an American flag to put in the statue’s hand.

Normally, whatever decoration is placed upon the statue is removed after a week or so by whomever put the decorations up in the first place. To my surprise and chagrin, when I passed by the statue on Tuesday morning on my way to the Plantation for coffee, the flag was removed.

Whoever took it upon themselves to remove the flag, one request: please put it back on the statute as it was or return it to me at the Plantation. Your removal of the flag was not necessary and not appreciated.
