|Measure EE Resoundingly Defeated
| Measure EE failed in 14 of the 15 LA City Council Districts
Measure EE’s defeat highlights that even in tax-friendly Los Angeles, a poorly constructed tax measure with no reform put forward by a school district with a poor achievement record can be defeated. The No on Measure EE campaign held the Yes campaign below 50 percent (54% N to 46% Y). Based on these results, the No on Measure EE campaign issued the following statement:
“We ran an honest and transparent campaign. We focused on letting the voters know that Measure EE was a rushed, flawed, massive property tax increase that wouldn’t have fixed the LAUSD,” stated Tracy Hernandez, BizFed founding CEO. “a majority voters shared these concerns and resoundingly defeated Measure EE.”
“Contrary to the Yes campaign’s claims, the No on Measure EE campaign wasn’t against public education or children; rather, it was against a poorly written tax measure with weak oversight and no real accountability,” added Stuart Waldman, VICA president.
“We look forward to getting back to the table with LAUSD to identify reforms and a funding alternative that will advance real change and ensure a quality education for all of our children,” concluded Maria Salinas, Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce president and CEO.
