Old Adobe School District bond measure considered too close to call

Voters passed four school district bond measures in Sonoma County, but Tuesday's vote was too close to call for two more school districts hoping for bond and tax measure money.

Bonds totalling $64 million were approved in Sebastopol, Healdsburg, Wright and Guerneville.

But Petaluma's Old Adobe District was getting 56.1 percent of the vote on its $26 million bond measure with an unknown number of last-minute and provisional ballots still uncounted. General obligation bonds need 55 percent approval to pass.

Cotati-Rohnert Park's parcel tax was winning by the slimmest of margins, netting 66.9 percent of the vote. The tax needs 66.67 percent to pass.

"It's probably about three weeks" before the school district contests become final, said Janice Atkinson, county elections chief.
