Supporters of Greenlight Pinellas are not a happy bunch today

Except for a couple of outliers in the central part of the county, support for Greenlight Pinellas was concentrated in central and southern St. Petersburg, south of 54th Avenue N. [Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections]

As Tony Marrero reported Tuesday night, an overwhelming majority of Pinellas County voters rejected Greenlight Pinellas, a plan that would have transformed the county's transportation network and given momentum to a similar effort across Tampa Bay. Supporters of the plan were not a happy group. Here are some their responses from Twitter:

Greenlight had a tough time outside St. Pete's core, according to this precinct map. Looks similar to Tampa in 2010 http://t.co/lcDbZv3UAw

If you live in Pinellas, next time you complain about the traffic or property taxes, just remember- you voted against Greenlight.

Greenlight Pinellas failed, but people will one day realize, come together, and help develop the most potentially popular county.

"@fab_riella: Greenlight pinellas wouldve helped so many working class citizens" I depend on the bus so much & it would have been a blessing

After reading the Greenlight Pinellas proposal and looking at both views, I think I have a good understanding why that didn't pass

Really Pinellas? You voted against Greenlight? You'rd hereby forbidden from complaining about traffic. #enjoyUS19traffic

The parts of Pinellas that voted against Greenlight are the same areas that need the break from traffic. #irony http://t.co/ke4HY4kYSm

Pinnellials don't be putting your Subarus on craigslist just yet. That's a crash on Greenlight Pinellas, @WBJHolan
