Memorial passing, D-11 incumbents lead in early returns

Posted By on Tue, Nov 1, 2011 at 7:27 PM

Colorado Springs is approving the city issue 2B regarding Memorial Health System, but saying a huge no to the state Proposition 103, in the first county election results of the night.

Also, incumbents Bob Null and Jan Tanner appear certain to win second terms to the Colorado Springs School District 11 board, with newcomers Nora Brown and Elaine Naleski leading Jim Mason in the quest for the other two available at-large positions.

With 89,221 votes (those cast as of Monday night) out of 238,355 eligible voters, turnout should top off at about 110,000 when the night is done.

City Issue 2B is winning easily, with 36,219 (61.10%) voting yes to 21,407 no (36.11%). The issue put forward by City Council would remove the option of assessing an additional property tax to cover a shortfall in Memorial Health System operations.

Proposition 103, which would return sales and income taxes to 1998 levels for public education, is getting throttled by 72-28 percent, or 63,452 no to 24,573 yes.

Fountain's City Council race is shaping up as a surprise, with incumbents Harold Thompson and Lois Landgraf trailing in early returns.

Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 is approving its funding increase request, while Falcon District 49 is nixing an increase.
