The next update will be on November 8, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. While others declare Measure U has been defeated with the above information, I will sit tight until the official word comes down from the ROV. Here is their website for information on other candidates, propositions and ballot measures:>>>link
The Morongo Basin Property Association would like to thank all the citizens of our community and surrounding neighbors for their support to defeat this 1% General Fund 30 year tax. With a little over $900.00 spent to oppose Measure U, compared to the $34,0000.00 raised by the Political Action Committee/YV Chamber of Commerce, this vote has defined the character of the voters of Yucca Valley in their spirit and determination to stand up to large campaign donations to promote this bad tax.
A statement will be issued by the Vote No on Measure Committee when the results have been declared official by the Registrar of Voters.
In the meantime, I want to personally say “Thank You” and give thanks to the Big Guy upstairs who has been in control all along.
