Vice Mayor Needs Math Lesson

Postby Sadie » Sun Nov 11, 2012 11:03 am

If there are 5,000 votes yet to be counted. Renee would need to get 1027 votes to overtake Miller that would be 20.54% of the outstanding vote, and that is if Miller recieved ZERO votes.

Miller has received 16.4% of the reported votes. If Miller were to only get 13.2% of the remaining 5,000 bollots, which is what the last place candidate recieved, that would add 660 vote.

So 1026 plus 660 equals 1686 votes needed to win a seat on the council.

Renee would need to get more than 33.72% of the outstanding ballots.

It all adds up to Renee not being elected this time.

...and Sadie, you need a spelling lesson, as you spelled "received" incorrectly. (I before E, except after C...)

Sometimes the absentee ballots yield different results from the walk-in votes, and 5,000 ballots is a large number. Why ask someone to concede so soon?

Mr. X: (I can see why you didn't want to give your name) The dialogue here is less than respectful. I would hope for better from my community.

I think Mr. X's joke was making a Karl Rove reference. Referring to his wildly inaccurate predictions. I thought it was kind of funny....

Picky, picky, picky Bookworm. It must be burdensome to be perfect.

When all is said and done and Tiff is not reelected who are you going to blame? Afterall it's NEVER the progressive candidate's fault.

Don't be so judgmental "Bookworm" if indeed that is your real name. My name is a reference just like my previous post. Localmom got it. Back to the books for you I guess.

Interesting that it was only OUR Local Progressives that lost around the country! The Democrats have taken a 2/3 control of both houses of the State Legislature for the first time since the 1930s I believe... Obama is swept into office by well over 300 Electoral Votes and more than 3 million popular votes... yet in "progressive" Petaluma the biggest alleged progressive up for re-election on the Petaluma City Council LOSES!!! I think we voted just fine, and chose the best 3 candidates running.... Let her have her Swan Song if she wishes... She will be GONE in January!!!! Hip Hip Hooray!!!

Keep in mind that the "pro-business" candidates who won the Petaluma City Council race would still be considered "leftist loonies" by people in places like Oklahoma or South Carolina. It's only here in the Bay Area they're considered to be "moderate."
