Surprise, surprise! Act 1 went down to defeat - big time! In the district that takes my money, voters said "NO" by a margin of 4 or 5 to 1.
Perhaps the biggest surprise is just how miserably the proposal failed. Around the state, Act 1 was a total bust. This morning, the AP reported that votes from 2/3 of the 498 school districts that had Act 1 on the ballot had been counted. Only four - yes, 4 - okayed Act 1. Some official type person said he thought it was because voters didn't understand Act 1. I think it's because they did.
If you care to look, HERE is a link to the PA Dept. of State so you can see how Act 1 fared in school districts around Pennsylvania.
