Claremont voters have approved Measure W by a significant margin, according to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder preliminary General Election results. The unofficial results show the measure winning 71.38% of the vote. The County will certify official results by the end of the month.
The passage of Measure W authorizes the City to borrow up to $135 million in bonds for the purpose of purchasing Claremont's water system, currently owned by Golden State Water Company (GSW). The Claremont City Council voted unanimously in July of this year to place the local bond measure on the ballot due to rising water rates and citizen complaints about lack of local control.
