(August 7, 2007) The Ypsilanti School Bond narrowly passed with a 102 vote margin. Turn out was light for the August election with no other issues on the ballot. The final vote count was 1136 to 1034 with 52% voting for the bond.

The City of Ypsilanti votes voted more heavily in favor of the Bond proposal with all precincts reporting, 601 for and 376 opposed. Nearly 62% of Ypsilanti City voters were in favor of the School bond issue. However, voter turnout was very small in the City with less than 10% of registered voters showing up to the polls today.

Insiders at Ypsilanti City Hall were quietly pleased with the school results. While no one would speak on the record, hopes were buoyed for the city as they prepare for the upcoming City Income Tax vote in November. One official saying that perhaps it was a sign that voters would vote for the upcoming City Income Tax.

    What a bizarre reaction. The similarities between the bond and the income tax are ????

    Cam-Money out of the taxpayers pocket… it is the silly illusion of some that Ypsi’s citizens will cough for the tax hoping for a Lansing bailout… I would think that Ypsi folks are smarter than that, but Schreiber is Mayor so I can’t be so sure.
