Alameda’s Measure B Loses By 70 Points

Measure B, the widely criticized initiative sponsored by Alameda Point developer SunCal, lost badly at the polls yesterday, garnering a pathetic 15 percent of the vote. The “no” votes, by contrast, accounted for 85 percent, meaning the measure lost by a whopping 60 70 percentage points. The lopsided loss came as no surprise to SunCal officials who earlier this week made the unusal move of conceding defeat before the polls opened.
