Measure C in Oakland Passes!

While you have probably heard much in the news (I know I can't seem to get away from it) about Oakland voters passing Measure F, which allows for the taxing of medical marijuana dispensaries, local media outlets seem to be treating the passing of Measure C as a parenthetical news story.

The good news is that Measure C, which called for a 3 percent increase in the city hotel tax fund to go toward supporting arts and culture, was overwhelmingly passed. More details about the results of this vote can be found at http://www.insidebayarea.com/crime/ci_12675902?source=rss.
