We are thrilled to announce that Measure A has passed! Thanks to the overwhelming support of Arcadia voters, 31 jobs will be saved, and $77 million is secured for Arcadia Unified schools over the next 18 years. The election results of Measure A were officially certified yesterday. It was a pretty close race. In fact, after election night, we were below the ⅔ Yes votes that were needed.
After the 7,207 votes were counted, 4,874 were Yes, for a total of 67.63% Yes votes. That exceeded the ⅔ supermajority needed by 67 votes, which equals .96%.
The above is background information you can use. If you need a quote or more information, I’m available this afternoon to help with that.
