"NO on Measure G" increases lead... the difference is now 801 votes
FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- It appears Mayor Ashley Swearengin will not be getting the $3.6 million she had hoped for by privatizing residential trash pickup. That's grim news for the cash-strapped city.
The new numbers for the Measure G effort were posted at the elections office. The No on Measure G effort holds the majority of votes at 50.68% to 49.32%.
This election is separated by just 801 votes, and it's even closer if you factor in the 600 contested votes from last week's heated arguments between the elections office and the Yes on Measure G campaign. Even if those ballots are all Yes on G, the No side will still be ahead.
