LA Times analysis shows that ballot-box support for Measure J (the 30-year transit tax extension) dropped by 6% county-wide as compared with support for the original transit tax, Measure R, back in 2009. The kicker: support fell 16% here in Beverly Hills. We has been among the greatest boosters for Measure R. The article cites acrimony over the proposed subway alignment for causing the decline, and notes that those areas (like BH) where support fell most are behind the failure of Measure J to pass, falling short by only 0.4% at the ballot box.
