The Princeton Aquatic Centre Referendum is over. The first numbers to come from the Chief Election Officer are listed below. We are still waiting for the official announcement and until then these numbers are not set in stone. Although it is not expected that there will be any change, we will however update promptly if necessary.
There are several things which can be inferred from these numbers. One is the relative lack of interest, one way or the other, shown in the Town of Princeton. Not a lot of voters showed up there. Another is the unusually large number of voters who showed up in Area ‘H’ and the large majority of NO votes there. This is not just a no – it is a NO!
Although this aquatic centre project and referendum has been described by a few people as being a two sided issue, the reality is that there has not been any controversy in our town. The bottom line is that the referendum has failed to show significant interest in funding this large project. Certainly from a Coalmont point of view – we won. §
UPDATE: The OFFICIAL results have now been confirmed and they are the same as we have above. You can see the details on the Official Referendum Results RDOS page.
