Measure V losing; Veenker, Lauing, Lythcott-Haims ahead

In the first batch of results tonight:

• Measure V, which would have made it more difficult to build apartments in single-family zoned neighborhoods in Menlo Park, was headed for defeat.

• In a seven-candidate field for three spots on the Palo Alto City Council, Vicki Veenker, Ed Lauing and Julie Lythcott-Haims appear to be headed for victory.

• Former Palo Alto Police Chief Robert Jonsen had a four-point lead over retired sheriff’s captain Kevin Jensen in the race to see who replaces Laurie Smith as sheriff.

• Rebecca Eisenberg had an 8-point lead over incumbent Gary Kremen for a seat on the Santa Clara Valley Water board.

  1. Bye bye Menlo Park. This city’s time as Paradise Falls may be over, but it’s only a matter of time until every Carl and Ellie (see Pixar’s UP) in Menlo figure out the skyscrapers are coming to block out their daylight. Something like Measure V will have supermajority vote numbers a few years from now, and every councilmember will be pretending they had nothing to do with it.
