Road Bond Package Sliding Toward Defeat

Posted By on Wed, Nov 7, 2012 at 8:00 AM

When county officials stopped counting votes last night, the city's road bond proposition had fallen narrowly into the "No" column.

With a lot of votes left to count in the next few days, 54,355 voters opposed the ballot prop, while 53,420 supported it.

“It looks like it’s going to be close,” Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild said. “I hope that the people of Tucson will support fixing our roads.”

City Councilman Steve Kozachik, the council's lone Republican, echoed those thoughts.

"I hope it passes," said Kozachik. "I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't."
