THE SANTA CRUZCOUNTY ELECTIONS HAVE TAKEN SHAPE IN DETERMINING THE OUTCOME OF THE COUNTY MEASURES.    EVERY MEASURE IN THE COUNTY RECEIVED ENOUGH VOTES TO BE PASSED AND BROUGHT FORWARD. 

IN THE MONTEREY COUNTY ELECTIONS, THE MEASURES ON THE BALLOT INCLUDED  N AND O.    NEITHER OF THE MEASURES WERE ABLE TO RECEIVE ENOUGH VOTES IN ORDER TO BE PASSED…..THIS INCLUDED THE GONZALES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT BOND ISSUE, AND THE MEASURE ON PUBLIC OWNERSHIP OF THE DISTRICT WATER SYSTEM (WHICH IS CURRENTLY OWNED BY CAL-AM).

IN SAN BENITOCOUNTY,  THERE WERE TWO MEASURES, F AND G THAT WERE VOTED ON IN YESTERDAYS ELECTION. MEASURE F WHICH INCLUDED THE RENEWAL OF A VEHICLE LISCENSE FEE RECEIVED MORE THAN THE MAJORITY IN ORDER TO BE PASSED.    MEASURE G, RECEIVED MORE THAN 56 % OF THE VOTES (BUT THAT DID NOT INCLUDE SOME VOTERS IN SANTA CLARACOUNTY).     THOSE RESIDENTS VOTED 66% AGAINST,  SO THE OVERALL STANDING OF THE MEASURE HAS YET TO BE DETERMINED.
