    If you want less of something, tax it more. Tourism is the life of this town, and it can go away with more decisions like this.

    I believe there was some confusion as to whether or not Measure C would be considered passed if it only passed with a simple majority. Was that ever clarified? And what was the determination? 50% plus one, or was the threshold higher? Is there a California election code number that confirms what ever threshold was settled on?
