Both of Lamorindaâ€™s road measures died at the polls Tuesday night.
Lafayetteâ€™s Measure C, a $150 annual parcel tax bid to fix cracked and pothole-riddled residential streets, captured 62.9 percent of the vote. It needed a two-thirds approval.
Orindaâ€™s Measure E, a $58.6 million bond to fix roads, drains and water pipes, also fell short of the required two-thirds approval with 63.4 percent of the vote.
In Lafayette, where more than 100 supporters have spent weeks lobbying voters, campaign volunteers expressed disappointment over the loss.
