The Church of Light Rail suffers another defeat

...this time in Tualatin - 75% voting to require a public vote on light rail planning or funding...

Tualatin voters in a Tuesday night special election were overwhelmingly passing Ballot Measure 34-220, which would prohibit the city from using its resources on the financing, design, construction or operation of light rail without first getting voters' approval.
Partial returns posted just after 8 p.m. showed that nearly 75 percent of more than 2,800 city residents voted "yes." Turnout was under 25 percent.
