After Measure B

It’s over. And maybe it’s just beginning.

Barring a stunning reversal in the delayed count of 308 vote-by-mail and provisional ballots yet to be certified at press time, Measure B was narrowly defeated on Nov. 19, following a voter turnout of roughly 60 percent.

From that outcome we can draw at least two conclusions.

First, neither side won a mandate from Sonoma voters.

Second, a majority of city residents were not, it appears, trembling with anxiety that the city is on the path to cultural ruin at the hands of invading hordes of tourists.
