Our little election is over, and sadly Eric Garcetti won his re-election by a landslide.
He took home 81% of about 250,000 votes cast. Mitchell Schwartz came in second place with only 8%.
In L.A. City, Measure S failed with about 69% opposed, so it looks like high rises will keep getting built and traffic will continue to be awful.
What sucks even more than Garcetti getting re-elected is Measure H passing. Congragulations L.A. County residents, you just raised taxes on yourselves again.
The 1/4 sales tax hike to "fix the homeless problem"got 67.4% in favor from 550,000 votes.
That win was just above the 2/3 majority needed to pass. But it passed, and needless to say Garcetti was pleased:
We all know the only thing Garcetti cares about is running for Governor in 2018. He doesn't care about this city, he only cares about himself.
What a joke of a mayor.
