Election roundup: Victory for Prop AA!

Posted Wednesday November 03, 2010 by admin

Great news! San Francisco’s Prop AA passed, which will raise $1.25 million for street improvements for pedestrians, and another $1.25 million for transit reliability improvements.

More good news from the statewide election: Prop 23, which Walk SF opposed, failed with only 39% of the vote. This leaves California’s landmark climate-change-fighting bill untouched, allowing the state to continue moving forward on supporting sustainable transportation options–like walking!

And some bad news: Prop 26, which Walk SF also opposed, passed. This means that new fees will now, like taxes, require a 2/3 vote, and so raising revenue for public improvements and services will now become much more difficult.
