The Results of the 1995 San Bernardino City Municipal Primary: City Attorney Election
May 17, 2012 Leave a comment
I have been researching the history of the City Attorney’s Office in San Bernardino. In the past, I have written a post which touches a little about the history of the City Attorney’s Office in San Bernardino, but I haven’t published a full history of the office.
In my series about past election results, I included data from past elections that was available from the San Bernardino Registrar of Voters. I wrote “online sources say that City Attorney Penman beat Stan Tomlinson by a 3 to 1 margin in 1995.” Yesterday, pursuant to a California Public Records Act Request, I received a copy of the results of the 1995 election. 3 to one would be by 75 percent, but it was not quite 75 percent.
I have created a database of the City Attorney elections from 1907 to present, but other than the winners, and in some case the candidates, and in the rare case actual results, it is most complete from 1987 to present. I have added all the counts together in one data set. If there is a blank, I don’t have data.
