The Local & State Election Results You Missed

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

If you are anything like me, you woke of this morning feeling like you got repeatedly sucker punched while witnessing the apocalypse last night. I couldn’t take my eyes off the sea of red on the electoral maps, but this morning there are other results from the four page ballot San Franciscans had to tackle. Overall, its not a pretty picture, but there are a few spots of light here and there.

As of today, Californians can legally posses up to an ounce of marijuana for personal use, which is good because we are going to need it. The creepy condoms in porn prop failed and Broke-Ass Stuart’s local friends Tom Temprano, Lateefah Simon, Hillary Ronen and Matt Haney won their respective elections. Beyond San Francisco, four women of color were elected to the Senate and Oregon elected our nation’s first openly LGBT governor, which makes the Portland exodus even more appealing.
