MeasureC 8.11pm

At 8:00 pm Tuesday, the Contra Costa County Elections is reporting that Measure C has 69.86% supporting the measure with 30.14% opposed with just 7,903 votes tallied thus far.

There are 32-Princnts in Antioch and it was reported yesterday that 8,082 absentee ballot have already been submitted. Election officials are hoping to have all precincts counted by 11:00 pm.

Needing 50% + 1 to pass, the Measure C would increase the sales tax in Antioch by a ½ cent from 8.5% to 9% matching Pittsburg and Concord. The sales tax increase would be in place for 7-years and the City Council has told its residents the money will help hire 22-police officers and help reinstate police programs which would be reviewed by a citizens committee.

  1. This is awesome news!! Now it’s time to keep on our Council’s ((behind)) to make sure the money is spent where it is SUPPOSED TO BE SPENT!!!

  2. This is good news for Antioch and all of the surrounding cities. Let’s hope this succeeds and is a turning point.

  3. This is ridiculous! We don’t need more police. We need more over sight for Section 8 and close the open door to our city. This is a Band-Aid approach to a problem that continues to grow. Close the flood gates and there would not be a need for more police.

  4. Your grammar and spelling are pathetic. I’d expect more from a “so called” writer/editor.
