Early into this evening's election, the $815 million Pima County bond measure is showing an unfavorable result with the region's voters.

The bond, which is broken up into seven categories, would fund things such as road repair, tourism attraction, park improvements, and flood control.

Supporters of the bond say it's the only way the county will get the funding needed to achieve it's goals of staying economically competitive, while adversaries say it will simply raise residents' property taxes at the hand of irresponsible county spending.

As of 9 p.m., the county recorder's office shows all seven bond questions failing. The seven bond measures and associated funding are:
• Proposition 425: Road and Highway Improvements: $200 million
• Proposition 426: Economic Development, Libraries and Workforce Training: $91.3 million
• Proposition 427: Tourism Promotion: $98.6 million
• Proposition 428: Parks and Recreation: $191.5 million
• Proposition 429: Public Health, Welfare, Safety, Neighborhoods and Housing: $105.3 million
• Proposition 430: Natural Area Conservation and Historic Preservation: $112 million
• Proposition 431: Flood Control and Drainage: $16.9 million

Here are the unofficial results, with zero precincts reporting:
•Proposition 425:
Yes: 57,567 No: 66,051
—————————————————————————-
•Prop 426:
