Interesting list. Looks like the Mayor went straight for the wealthiest possible future donors to her next campaign. Brilliant. Not one "normal worth" person on the list.

Finally, the Indy got one right with No on P, but is totally wrong on Prop 1. You think our water shortage is in trouble now, wait until you see what happens if Prop 1 doesn't pass.

I agree with mtndriver, this should be "Most Popular" not "Best of...". Almost none of the winners are "best", but Rusty's as "best" of anything except kids restaurant is a travesty.

I see it differently. I think there are plenty of creek restoration opportunities elsewhere in the city. Why does this one need to be the priority. I welcome a 91-unit senior housing complex on that site. Hopefully responsible minds, not extremist, enviro zealots will win out on this one.

Also, if you're not solidly behind Prop 1 (sounds like Cunningham and West are wavering) you have no business being on a water district board, or running for one.

I'm a GWD constituent and Bertrando needs to go. Will likely vote for McClure but not sure which of the other two, if either I will cast my vote for.

The whole thing is ridiculous. Measure P is a very bad overreach that will have extreme negative consequences for the county if it passes. I don't think it will.

mkm123, the city already receives Measure A money for transportation (perhaps not enough), and has Measure B (portion of hotel tax) for creek repairs/maintenance. I would guess this is getting us setup for a citywide sales tax measure, perhaps for the 2016 presidential election ballot?
The unwritten story here (not likely to be found in the Indy at least) is the ever-increasing costs of public employee pensions that are sucking up funds that could be used for infrastructure maintenance/repair purposes.

Pretty sure this poll is pretty accurate as to how the vote will turn out. No on P!
On Mail in voting begins October 6. What say you on Measure P?

Marc Chytillo was on the committee to pass Measure A, so the freeway widening could be funded, so...he could make $$$ litigating against it. A real honest Joe, that guy.
And Nick, stop including Rob Dayton in your stories, like he's important (other than in his own mind). He's a mid-level staffer that has done very little to improve the city's transportation policies. After all, he's the one that forgot to include a new interchange for Cottage Hospital in the Measure A strategic plan.
