Please do not be duped again by those intent on shutting down our city. We have a good economic atmosphere now and for the sake of me, I cannot fathom what our former mayor and his cohorts are thinking about. Certainly not the good of the city as they profess.
Those who signed the petition for Measure A never had a chance to read the entire initiative if they wanted to, because it was torn apart so only one page was available, and that was for signatures. That, coupled with all of the misleading statements about "stopping traffic" in and around Newport Center and Corona del Mar, assuredly caused some of you to sign without thinking about reading what you signed.
Nothing is going to "stop" the traffic in our area. We like being here and so do thousands of other Orange County residents who would like to live here but content themselves with a visit to our beaches. They are not the largest daily source of traffic congestion.
Look at Corona del Mar at 7:30 in the morning, any morning, and see all the cars going into Santa Ana and other areas inland for work. And look again at 5:30 in the evening as they go home. Talk about a standstill. That is every day, summer and winter. In the summer, we add the visitors.
