Results are in, and the airport bond of 2023 failed worse than the last failed airport bond of 2015.
Saturday's failed final bond vote (not official) showed a total of 21,846 votes cast. Of those votes, 41% were cast for the bond, and 58% were against the bond. It looks like a doubling of voters in an off-year election too!
Here are the results from the failed $50M airport bond election from November 2015 48% for the bond and 51% against the bond. A total of 10,473 votes were cast in that election.
In this particular election, there were 7 propositions on the ballot:
Prop 1 Passed - street projects
Prop 2 Failed - airport improvements for land acquisition and hangar construction
Prop 3 Passed - public safety facilities
Prop 4 Passed - municipal building improvements for a library expansion
Prop 5 Failed - downtown parking structure
Prop 6 Passed - flood protection in some areas
Prop 7 Passed - to revoke $13M in park bond capacity (MCDC pays instead)
