Today is a great day if you live in Santa Fe!

People against Sugar Tax has welcomed the emphatic defeat of the soda tax proposal in Santa Fe (New Mexico), confirmed in the last few hours.

With total votes counted from six of the eight polling districts, the results show 57% of Santa Fe residents voted 'no' to a soda tax, with just 43% voting 'yes'.

"With an overwhelming 57% of Santa Fe residents saying 'no', they have slammed the brakes on the soda tax juggernaut, stopping it in its tracks. The Sante Fe Mayor has already conceded defeat."

"Today is a great day if you live in Santa Fe!"
