  • ELECTION FOLLOW-UP – COOLEY PULLS AHEAD

    Posted: November 12, 2010 | Posted by CBPA | No Comments

    In the one race that threatens the Democratic Party hegemony in the statewide offices, Republican Attorney General Candidate Steve Cooley looks very likely to win the razor-thin close race over Kamala Harris.  On Election Day, Harris had a thin lead, but as more result from vote-by-mail ballots have been counted Cooley has pulled ahead.  Should Cooley win the race, it will mark the first time in 12 years that a Republican has occupied the top law enforcement office. 

    Always an important post, now it is especially so.  Aside from providing the one counter balance to one-party-rule in Sacramento, Cooley will play an important role in assuring that Prop. 26 will be implemented in the way intended to limit the ability to hike taxes.  Cooley will also conduct the important role of reviewing and approving statewide propositions.  This is especially important to our industry, as we are expecting a run at split roll property tax.
