John Deeth Blog: SILO Wins Johnson, Linn; Democrat Miller Wins Linn Auditor
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Quick exhausted look at the numbers:
# Turnout picks up a bit late in the day as the snow slows, still a bit short of 1999
# Hot Spot: Iowa City 4 (Manville Heights and Peninsula)with 86%; Lone Tree with 81%
# West side pretty warm, upper to mid 70s, also IC24 (City High) and North Coralville)
# The cool spot in town, as always for school measures, was southeast Iowa City. Not so much regressivity as read my lips working class tories here.
# A few scattered rural precincts, mostly in the south, were weak or actual no votes.
# Top percentage turnout was Solon
# Student turnout near non-existent.
Now that the penny SILO tax is consistent statewide, the Johnson-Linn legislators can better make a case for some restructuring of education funding.
