I haven't read the aftermath article that was no doubt in the Vanguard Wednesday morning. I have grown yawn of the analysis/spin and the predictability. I could write the article. I will go read it for the comments, but without Alan Miller and Keith O., the comments have really become dull. And Ron O., by his descriptions here, half his stuff is censhored. How is censhored content either a discussion or entertaining?
But what has changed is that the key issues/peoples the Vanguard champions died last night. Here's my prediction (or a post-diction since it's already been written): the article will include Measure H, Chesa Boudin and Reisig. Am I close? The Vanguard lost, and all such progressive/woke initiatives are going down, like a sinking submarine. They didn't just go down, they were all massacres. Sinking massacres. Mixed metaphors.
Measure H? 64% vs. 52% last time. So it's getting worse, horribly worse, for the prospects of development. Probably not ever going to be developed unless every taxpayer in Davis is bribed $1000 to vote 'yes'. More voters would have mattered? Doesn't matter, that's how it is. Where were all those student voters voting 'yes' that didn't last time? Not voting, as usual, as students don't. In one of the Valley's most liberal towns, it went down. Must be all the racists on the 'no' SIDE.
Chesa? An initiative on 'defund the police'. Doesn't matter what the stats are. The public has had it. In one of the countries most liberal cities.
Reisig? He stooped pretty low with the child molester attempted link. Then the lipstick-on-a-pig flyer came out. OK now they both stopped low, so no moral advantage there. But again, people in a Valley county with a super-liberal town/city, even Yolo leans law & order. And for me, Reisig's dept. put a murderer behind bars who killed a friend's partner in front of them and their young child. And the murderer should NEVER get out of jail, unless the living victim says so. Period. Majority of us don't believe in term limits for murderers.
