Elections 2014

    Here’s a roundup of unofficial numbers from the County of San Bernardino Registrar of Voters.

    There were two measures put on the ballot by the Mayor and Common Council of the City of San Bernardino to amend the Charter of the City of San Bernardino.

    Measure Q would have effectively repealed Charter Section 186, and was defeated:

    Measure Q – City of San Bernardino
    182/182 100.00%
    Vote Count Percent
    YES 7,112 44.68%
    NO 8,804 55.32%
    Total 15,916 100.00%

     

     

    Measure R amends the Charter of the City of San Bernardino:

    YES 8,532 54.76%
    NO 7,048 45.24%
    Total 15,580 100.00%

     

    Former Fourth Ward Council Member Neil Derry lost his bid for one of three City of Redlands Council Seats, getting more votes then only Tabetha Wittenmyer, who dropped out, and newcomer John Harrison Montgomery:

    PAUL W. FOSTER 7,056 21.09%
    Total 33,459 100.00%

     

    The City of Highland rejected a move to a ward system, which will probably result in a California Voting Rights Act lawsuit.

    Former 2nd Ward Council Member Susan Longville won in a crowded field for a seat on the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District Board, beating City of San Bernardino Board of Water Commissioners Commissioner Wayne Hendrix, and former Fourth Ward Council candidate Joe Arnett, and San Bernardino Unified School District Board of Trustees Member (and Congressional District 31 primary candidate) Danny Tillman:

    JOE ARNETT 942 7.95%
    DANNY TILLMAN 1,461 12.34%
    Total 11,843 100.00%

    In Congress, Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar leads Paul Chabot for the California Congressional District 31 race:

    The unfortunate thing about recycling Measures in the same county is that at least for awhile, you get links to old initiatives.  Measure Q a few years back was a County charter initiative about supervisor pay.  Now, Measure Q is the repeal of San Bernardino Charter section 186 which sets public safety pay.

     

    Here is the website for the No on Measure Q forces.  The Website has a video regarding Measure Q.

    Press release from the Pete Aguilar campaign on the cessation of the recount

     

    Pete Aguilar Statement on Completion of Recount

    (San Bernardino, CA) – In response to the completion of the recount in California’s 31st Congressional district, Pete Aguilar released the following statement:

     

    “I’m very pleased that the recount leaves the primary election results unchanged and demonstrates the integrity of the voting process. I look forward to a spirited debate with Paul Chabot over how best to ensure a brighter economic future for the Inland Empire.”

     

    Pete Aguilar is a small business owner and Mayor of Redlands. He is a strong advocate for economic growth and fairness in the Inland Empire, a leader who has reached across party lines to serve the best interests of the middle class in San Bernardino County

    These are the results from the San Bernardino Registrar of Voters posted today, June 6, 2014 at 3:47 PM.  I took out the statewide races, and as usual, some of these districts are multi-county.

    There appears to be a lot of interest in this race (not so much that people actually voted, mind you), probably because of the Red to Blue aspect of it. Anyway, I thought I would break this out for people who just want to know the unofficial results. The top two advance to the November 4, 2014 Statewide General Election, and the winner will represent the 31st Congressional District of California in the United States House of Representatives, Replacing Gary Miller.

     

    These results are from the California Secretary of State’s website, based on the final unofficial election night results from the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters:

    The next few months will be about the City of San Bernardino Charter review / Charter reform. The next few posts will be about section 186, also expected are posts on previous comprehensive charter reform efforts and the failures thereof.
