Prop 200 Defeated

Prop 200 went down in flames. 58,966 people voted. 28% yea, 72% nay.

Opponents of Prop 200 spent over $725,000 on their campaign, which included door hangers and lots of mailings. The victors paid over $17 per vote.

John Kromko's pro-Prop 200 campaign was more cost effective, costing him and his supporters $13,000, or 79 cents per vote.

I hope some serious work on the important problem of limiting growth can now begin.
