Oakland Zoo Measure and Pete Stark Defeated

We had considered these races too close to call yesterday, but in light of the fact that the Alameda County Registrar’s Office counted about 15,000 ballots yesterday and neither of these two contests budged, we have concluded that Measure A1, the Oakland Zoo tax, has been defeated and that longtime East Bay Congressman Pete Stark has lost reelection. Stark also conceded defeat yesterday afternoon to Dublin City Councilman Eric Swalwell.
