Hat tap to the awesome Twitters at the now rock star godlike No On Measure B Campaign for a fun tweet:
DEWEY WINS "Los Angeles Labor, Environmental, Community Leaders Celebrate Passage of Measure B"Hold the phone Batman! Those chomping at the bit for some of the Measure B jack were ready to pounce even before the last Minuteman left Walter Moore's rally at Dupars, issuing some bold statements. From the Times:
First up was H. David Nahai, the head of the Department of Water and Power, who sent an e-mail statement to reporters at 11:12 p.m. hailing Measure B's passage and congratulating voters for making "a bold choice for the environment." In his statement, Nahai said the DWP "has already laid the groundwork for ramping up the workforce required to begin implementing Measure B."But wait there's more:
And shortly after midnight, the head of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor sent her own statement touting her group's involvement in the Measure B campaign. "Tonight, voters clearly agreed that Measure B is more of what we need to get our environment and economy back on track," said Maria Elena Durazo, the federation's secretary treasurer.Looks like Measure B isn't shovel ready quite yet. A spate of uncounted provisional, absentee and hanging-ink-a-spot ballots could change course but not likely at this point.
