1998 and 2006 Library and Parks Measures Compared

image002

The Library and Park measures in 2006 were extensions of the 1998 measures. They were reasonably similar.  They provide a unique comparison between the two mayors. As can be seen, there was a significant drop in support between 1998 and 2006 for both measures.

There were a number of differences between the measures. It’s not clear if they helped or hindered the 2006 measures. For example, new measures, as both 1998 measures were, tend to do less well than renewals with a track record.
