Backers of Measure D may have been beaten at the polls Tuesday, but they are not defeated.
Officials with the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments, which drafted the proposal, refuse to concede until they see the final vote tally, which is expected in the coming weeks.
Only when the count is official, an SBCAG spokesman said, will they go back to the drawing board to craft a new proposal.
SBCAG staff members are quick to point out there are still 24,000 absentee and 3,000 provisional ballots to be counted.
On behalf of the COAST Board, I want to thank everyone who helped out on Measure D over the past year, and everyone who cared enough to take the time and become informed about the issues. Now, we really have our work cut out for us to educate more folks out there so that the next version of Measure D will pass. And we will keep working to make sure that whatever version of the measure appears on the ballot in 2008 will be a balanced measure like this one was, with plenty of funding for alternatives that will be sustainable for the 30 years of the measure and beyond.
Mark Bradley, President
