Voter turnout was 29% and we won in almost every district across the city. This was a win for truth, good governance, and progress for our community and we could not have done it without your support.

The “Yes” faction is not giving up on their power grab. The day after the results came in, Board of Representatives Majority Leader Nina Sherwood, leader of the “Yes” campaign, was quoted as saying:

 

“The election results are the product of what special interest money and excessive manipulation of facts can accomplish in an election in which people are just trying to do what’s right for their communities…Telling people taxes will go up and government will grind to a halt was a lie. I’m impressed that 8,485 people who waded through the tsunami of misinformation saw it for what it was, and voted to empower their own voices. At least, all of this had exposed who really pulls the strings in this city — and it’s not the people.”

 

In fact, the following members of the Board of Representatives already submitted a draft resolution on their upcoming Steering Committee agenda that seeks to initiate the Charter Revision process again, putting the exact same measures broken up into multiple questions on the 2024 ballot:
