Piercy vs. Torrey Money Measures Detailed

Torrey initiated a whole set of novel measures. These include the youth activity measures and the parks and library measures.

Piercy’s record becomes worse when the measures are broken up. Two of her four wins are renewals of Torrey measures (Library and Parks in November, 2006). Her other two wins are street repair measures. These were responses to the 2008 Torrey for Mayor campaign. Her own proposed 2007 Gas Tax measure  failed in a landslide. In other words, her four wins to date have all been heavily influenced by Torrey and her original ideas have failed.

Piercy’s losses were the gas tax, urban renewal, school income tax, and service fee.
