Phoenix voters voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to allow light rail expansion projects to continue, including one in South Phoenix that has residents concerned about how it will change their neighborhoods.
Proposition 105 was one of the two ballot measures Phoenix voters decided on in Tuesday’s special election. The measure would have stopped all funding for new light rail and other fixed-rail transit projects in Phoenix.
While the ballot measure stemmed from outrage by business owners and residents in South Phoenix, it was shaped by conservative operatives, as revealed by the Phoenix New Times.
