Monterey Peninsula voters want a public takeover of their private water system, if it’s feasible.  When they passed Measure J, they asked the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District to figure that out.  

Votes are still being counted in Monterey Bay area elections, but early numbers are in. These results are from the most recent tally, which was early Wednesday morning.
