Election Results Open Thread

The results are in from yesterday’s election – well, most of them are. The mayoral race won’t be finally called until 2nd- and 3rd-choice votes are counted, but 1st-choice results put Ed Lee in the lead at 31 percent followed by John Avalos at 18 percent.

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition had endorsed Avalos as their #1 and Lee their #3. The organization is already celebrating the passage of Proposition B, the $248 million bond measure for road repaving and street improvements which met the two-thirds vote requirement after the failure of similar measures in past elections.

Are you excited about seeing smoother streets and more bikeways, or was Prop B the wrong approach? Who would you like to see sitting in Room 200? What should be the mayor’s priorities in the next four years? Share your thoughts in the comments.
