They were stopped from issuing bonds, using urban renewal money, forcing a car tax and were left with two alternatives:
1. Doing what the voters wished and not build the lightrail extensionThey chose the latter.
2. Telling voters to screw off and selling out Clackamas County.
Clackamas County Elections Manager, Steve Kindred says voter turnout is pretty high for a one question election:
"If trend continues, Clackamas could see a 44 percent voter return in this election that includes just the light rail initiative. That's a 39 percent jump in turnout when compared to the Nov. 8, 2011 special election for two ballot mreasures, which saw a 24 percent voter return."For Commission Chair Charlotte Lehan and Commissioner Jamie Damon, you might want to start cleaning out your desks: November is coming.
